Computing in Action

Intent

  • At Holy Family, we believe a high quality computing education ensures that children become digitally literate - able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.
  •  Computing is also cross-curricular, progressing children's learning in all areas of the curriculum.

 

Implementation

  • Children are taught using ‘Kapow’ scheme of work.
  • Online safety is taught regularly at an age appropriate level.

KS1 children are taught to:

  • understand what algorithms are; how they are implemented as programs on digital devices; and that programs execute by following precise instructions,
  • create and debug simple programs,
  • use logical reasoning to predict the behaviour of simple programs
  • use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content.

KS2 children are taught to:

  • design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals,
  • use logical reasoning to explain how some simple algorithms work and to detect and correct errors in algorithms and programs
  • use search technologies effectively, appreciate how results are selected and ranked, and be discerning in evaluating digital content.

 

Impact

  • By the end of each key stage, pupils are expected to know, apply and understand the matters, skills and processes specified in their programme of study.
