Computing Curriculum

ICT Curriculum

Our ICT curriculum provides complete coverage of the computing programme of study delivering a broad and balanced curriculum throughout all Key Stages.

 

ICT helps to improve achievement levels, inspire creative thinking and encourage the development of skills that will prove invaluable in the real world and as such teachers strive to present children with the opportunities to hone their skills and then use these skills in relevant situations. ICT allows our pupils to explore, observe, engage, solve problems and make exciting discoveries for themselves. It stimulates collaboration and interaction amongst peers and also between pupils and teachers.

 

At Rimrose Hope our ICT resources not only provide the tools for promoting and developing these skills but also encourage pupils to engage confidently in imaginative learning across each of the three strands:

 

Computer Science - children learn how devices (computers, tablets, phones etc) work and how to program.

IT - children learn how to use technology purposefully and effectively.

Digital Literacy - children learn about the many benefits and opportunities technology brings, but also the potential risks.

 

To ensure we can facilitate these aspects at Rimrose Hope, we have made, and continue to make, investments in our equipment. We have recently replaced 26 computers and now have a fully functioning computer suite. iPads and tablets are also used in school to support teaching and learning in different curriculum areas.

 

The Department for Education (DfE) have set out the objectives for the expectations in Computing at both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. They can be found at the link below:

 

 

As we have mixed classes at Rimrose Hope, our curriculum is on a 2-year rolling programme. In the document below, it shows what each phase group will be doing throughout the year. 

 

Long Term Plans

At Rimrose Hope, we want to ensure that our pupils develop the necessary understanding, knowledge and skills that will set them on a path towards becoming confident and creative digital citizens. We created the document below to show our pupils' computing learning journey from Year 1 to Year 6.
