Computing at Moorings Way

All the teaching staff at Moorings Way Infant School are working with Meon Infant and Meon Junior School colleagues to identify how our curriculum will meet the needs of our children.

We believe it is important to plan the learning journey of the children from Year R to Year 6. Even though we are an Infant School, this doesn’t stop us planning what the children will learn when they leave us. This is vitally important. As 3 schools, we have joined together to produce a joint intention of what we want the children to learn. The following statements were produced by our subject teams in September 2019.

Learning in Computing

 

By the end of year 2, children will confidently work on digital devices to able to write and test simple programmes. They will have a developing knowledge of how technology is used in our school and the world around them. Pupils will have developing understanding of how to use technology safely and know they must speak to an adult if something does not feel right.

By the end of year 6, pupils will have experienced a balance curriculum covering all aspects of computing including; digital literacy skills, information technology, computer science and E safety. They will have a working knowledge of the role technology plays in their lives and in society today. Pupils will become Computational Thinkers and are able to participate effectively and safely in this digital world. They will be ready for their next stage in computing education to enable them to be successful learner for the future workplace.
