Computing

Vision Statement

By the time they leave Hambleton Primary School, we want all of our children to be fully aware of the significant risks (and benefits) of the internet and to know how to safeguard themselves in this area. We want every child to have a thorough understanding of computing science and to be ‘digitally literate’ to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through digital technology. Our children will be able to use these skills to enhance their learning in other curriculum areas. We promote the school Christian values of creativity, teamwork and resilience by designing and creating programmes with our pupils.

 

Extra Opportunities

  • E-safety workshops/visitors into school
    • Whole school Internet Safety Days
    • Digital Leaders group to deliver sessions to other classes/whole school assemblies/parents

 

Planning and Coverage

Computing planning is based on the knowledge coverage and skills progression for Key Stage One and Key Stage Two suggested in the Primary National Curriculum, which has been adapted accordingly on our Long Term Plans for each year group.

 

Some of the key skills that children learn in Computing are to:

 

  • understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation
  • analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems
  • evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems
  • be responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.
