Computing

Curriculum Intent

 

“Computational thinking provides insights into many areas of the curriculum, and influences work at the cutting edge of a wide range of disciplines. Why is computational thinking so important? It allows us to solve problems, design systems, and understand the power and limits of human and machine intelligence.” Computing at School.

 

Computational thinkers:

 

Computing is planned in-line with the statements from the National Curriculum

These aim to ensure that all pupils:

  • can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation.
  • can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems.
  • can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems.
  • are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.

 

Through the NCCE computing scheme and links to related themes/topics where possible, pupils have the opportunity to experience and learn computational thinking with a broad range of experiences with a variety of technology. 

Pupils are encouraged to assess their own learning alongside the teacher assessment that takes place.

Curriculum Statement for Computing

 

Our curriculum statement outlines our intent for the subject, our implementation of the subject and the desired impact our curriculum will have on the leadership and teaching of the subject and on our pupils and their learning. 

 

Progression and Skills

 

At Wolverley we plan our curriculum across four main milestones: Early Years, KS1, Lower KS2 and Upper KS2. We outline the knowledge, skills, and vocabulary to be taught across each phase.
