Our Computing curriculum covers the following 5 Areas:
Children learn about how to stay safe online and the risks associated with using the internet. E-Safety is taken very seriously at Middleton Parish and we hold an annual E-Safety Day, in line with National Safer Internet Day.
Children learn how to create, edit and test algorithms which instruct things such as Beebots and online avatars to complete certain tasks. We use programmes such as 2Code (Part of Purple Mash).
Children learn how to retrieve and organise data, from displaying data on a simple graph to a branching database or spreadsheet.
Children develop their word processing skills and use a range of computer programs such as Purple Mash, Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Publisher and Excel as well as SMART to create documents linked to the topics covered in our foundation subjects.
Technology in Our Lives
Children develop both their knowledge of the different types of technology around us and their ability to use them, from sending emails, to blogging and creating website pages.
