Growing In Faith and Learning
Intent: Here at St Leonard’s we provide the children with a computing curriculum that is relevant and exciting, allowing the children to develop their knowledge and skills that will help them succeed not just today, but far into the future. They will be taught how to stay safe and health during their digital experiences. We understand that technology is ever changing and our curriculum will adapt to the ever changing landscape of our technological world.
The lead teacher for Computing is Mr Postlethwaite. If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact me through the school office on 01827 213995 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Computing Priorities for 2019 / 20
This year in computing the key areas for development are;
Year 3 and 4 took part in a brilliant robotics workshop. The children were able to build their very own robots using a controller and a sensor. It was great to see the children working so well as a team. They demonstrated excellent problem solving skills to achieve their aim. Every single group completed the task and created a robot that could move and avoid obstacles.
'I really enjoyed playing with the completed robot. I was so happy when it worked.'
'I really enjoyed using all the parts to make our very own designs.'
'I liked when we tested the robot to make sure it was working.'
To celebrate our learning in computing we held a computer workshop in school. Children from each class were able to present their learning to the rest of the school and parents. We also invited along an 02 Guru to talk to the children and the adults about online safety.
