Have you ever wondered how the internet works or forgot what an algorithm is? 

BBC Bitesize has a range of interesting information pages and videos to help you know all about how computers and technology works, take a look here:

 

 

Typing 

How fast can you type? Can you use two hands?

If you are fortunate to have a keyboard why not practise your typing with this fun game:

 

Time to code

While school is closed, why not try to improve your coding skills. 

You could create your own assembly game ready for when we reopen or create a new game based around some previous learning, for example maths or reading, or it could be about an interest you have.

Why computing is important 

We want Sheringham children to be digital citizens because technology is shaping the world we live in. Our children need the foundation of skills and knowledge to be ready for future learning, at secondary school, the world of work and in their personal lives. 

Thanks to technology, children are able to instantly communicate globally at the click of a button; they need to understand the benefits and functions of different technology and, vitally, how to safely use it in a purposeful way.

How our computing curriculum is designed

Our curriculum is informed by the National Curriculum and enhanced by subject expertise held within Sheringham and the Learning in Harmony Trust, as well as local opportunities and current events. 

Computing is taught discretely as well as being integrated into other curriculum areas for maximum coverage and meaningful learning opportunities. Key areas, such as coding and online safety, are taught in blocks several times a year, with other skills such as typing, using search engines and presenting information often taught within the context of another curriculum area, such as history.

How children learn in computing

Sheringham digital citizens will…

  • Master basic skills, such as typing, email and online research and engage with a wide range of programmes through Microsoft Office and Google Drive.   
  • Use technology such as Google Hangouts to communicate with other pupils, both at Sheringham and with other schools.
  • Leave school confidently able to use the G suit to organise and present their learning. 
  • Know how to keep themselves safe online, through workshops and sessions exploring key themes.
  • Have the chance to share computing experiences with the whole school and wider community for example using Scratch to make team points games for Friday.
