Computing

Our intent:

Technology is changing the lives of everyone. Through teaching computing we equip our children to participate in a rapidly changing world where work and leisure activities are increasingly transformed by technology. 

It is our intention to enable children to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information. We also focus on developing the skills necessary for children to be able to use information in an effective way. 

Computing skills are a major factor in enabling children to be confident, creative and independent learners and it is our intention that children have every opportunity available to allow them to achieve this. 

 

Here at Woodlands we are using the PurpleMash Computing Scheme of work to deliver the Computing National Curriculum to our students.

I like the new computing suite because the computers are not as slow as the laptops that we had before and it means that I have more time to actually do computing work. It means you do not have to work in groups of 3s or 4s because multiple laptops are not working. I now enjoy computing and look forward to using the computers in computing and other lessons.
