At Christ Church Infant School we believe that children should have access to a computing curriculum that is rich in variety and allows children to explore technology across the curriculum. We believe that children should be immersed in learning that reflects our technological world and allows them to develop the necessary computing skills needed for lifelong development and participation in the 21st century world.
Year 1 Curriculum
Year 2 Curriculum
At Christ Church Infant School the computing curriculum is divided into 3 separate
strands; e-safety, creating digital content and computer science. The children are
exposed to these both in their computing lessons and through their use of
technology in their wider curriculum. We want the children to develop a deep
understanding of the skills included in each of these three strands. Where
appropriate the computing unit for each half term is linked to the topic that
children are focusing on. For example children in Year 2 create their own
broadcasts linked to their topic of London’s Burning.
Computing teaching is also highly focused on the importance of E-safety as
the underpinning value for all computing taught in school.
Children at Christ Church are enthusiastic and excited about the computing
learning opportunities provided for them. Our good quality and consistent
teaching across year groups and Key stages, allows the children to
experience and develop their skills in practical based classroom lessons.
Children acquire and master skills to become both technological consumers
and contributors in today’s technological age.
