Coverage of the Computing curriculum in our school ensures all children get to experience a wide range of software on different devices, along with termly E Safety lessons to help all our pupils use the Internet safely, sensibly and gain an understanding of what to do if they come across something that makes them feel uncomfortable.
Throughout the year children will have the opportunity to experience and use a wide range of techniques in fun and diverse lessons both in and out of the computing suite. The lessons runs alongside a variety subjects, allowing children the chance to work in a cross curricular manner. As part of the curriculum they will have the opportunity to use a range of software including Microsoft office, Textease and stop animation apps to produce their work in new and exciting ways. Not only this, but they will also learn about the computing industry and how it is shaping their future.
Programming (coding) can be found in almost all areas of our lives and in the electronic devices we have at work and at home. At Herne, children learn the basics of programming, with year 6 being extended to use a language of coding which is even used in the industry.
We aim to make all lessons creative, diverse and fun! Computing does not only happen sitting at the computer, but will also include the use of laptops, iPads and cross curricular writing and games. Throughout each lesson, children also learn various skills that they can use not only during their time at school, but throughout life.
Below is an overview of the computing curriculum for the whole school.
