“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.
Computing is planned in-line with the statements from the National Curriculum
These aim to ensure that all pupils:
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.
