Computing

What do we do in Computing?

Aims

At Scholar Green, we aim to produce learners who are confident and effective users of IT to equip them for the future through:

  • discrete ICT lessons in the classroom where they can work individually or in pairs as appropriate
  • using ICT as a tool to support and enrich learning across the whole curriculum
  • enabling them to make informed decisions about how and when to use ICT appropriately
  • providing equipment such as the trolley of laptop computers, an interactive whiteboard in each classroom & access to a digital camera.

Use of Computing in the Curriculum

We are rightly proud of the IT resources available to our children. There is an Interactive Whiteboard in each classroom which enables teachers to use subject specific programs, material from the internet as well as DVDs or CD ROMs to bring the curriculum to life. The children have access to a trolley of laptop computers so can pursue a highly personalised enquiry route through their study in each subject. We also use Purple Mash as a way of linking computing lessons in school to home.  All pupils have an individual log in to Purple Mash so that they can research, investigate and learn whenever and wherever they like.  More information about Purple Mash can be found on the computing link.

Structure

Generally we teach a discrete ICT lesson each week. In addition, teachers plan to apply the skills children learn in ICT lessons to support their recording and research in other curriculum areas. This enables skills to be applied in real contexts wherever possible. For example, children learning about spreadsheets in years five and six will use their knowledge in maths and science.

Older pupills learning is enhanced by visits to our local High Schools to use their ICT suites and more technical equipment.

During the academic year 2015-16 the PTA is fundraising to purchase a class set of tablets for pupils to use in their lessons.
