Computing Intent: Computing is aimed at children in ways that will capture their interest. The programs chosen are a range of app-based learning progression tasks, Barefoot activities and Hour of Code programs – all of which are delivered in a child-accessible format with links to content they find enjoyable. Most of the programs we use challenge children at their own level, allowing confident children to progress without restraint while providing scaffolding to children who need it. This allows the class teacher to deliver support where it is needed while consistently providing a challenge to pupils. E-Safety is continuously taught alongside every aspect of our engagement with technology and is at the heart of our computing curriculum design. The skills the children gain should provide them with opportunities to learn how to be future computer coders, produce written media through a variety of software, be potential movie makers or any other profession which will require technology on a daily basis.
