We have already had a really busy first term and there's more to come! We are currently working on a number of creative curriculum topics linking to out IPC unit. We are learning how devices implement inputs and outputs on devices and using algorithms to solve problem using computational thinking.
Year 1: We are treasure hunters – Programming/coding using programmable toys
Year 2: We are astronauts – Programming/coding on screen using SCRATCH program
Year 3: We are bug fixers - Finding and correcting bugs in programs using computational thinking
Year 4: We are software developers - Developing a simple educational game (Programming/coding)
Year 5: We are game developers - Developing an interactive game (Programming/coding)
Year 6: We are app planners - Developing a simple mobile phone app (Programming/coding)
Please, always feel free to come and see and be involved in what your children is leaning in the computing suite (refer to computing time table in the computing suite)
Online safety and advice for parents
We always spent time with children from each class exploring the use of social networking, online gaming and safe internet use. We also hold e-safety workshop with parents to provide support with keeping children safe at home.
Not sure how to protect your child from internet dangers? Have a look on the following website; it provides honest information about the Dos and Don’ts of the internet so you can judge whether or not a website is appropriate for your children. The website also provides a whole host of useful information.
If you want any more information, or you would like any support at home please ask or emails (firstname.lastname@example.org ) Tr. Alfred who will be happy to help or point you in the right direction.
