Computing at Avenue
Technology is a part of everyday life and, for most of us, is essential to our lives. At school, children have access to laptops, computers, tablets, interactive whiteboards and other resources to support the curriculum. They use these to learn about computing as well as to support learning in other subjects and to embed key skills.
Computing in EYFS
In Early Years the children explore using computers, interactive whiteboards and tablets to select and complete programs and games. We use iPads to record experiences with photographs and videos. Children will begin to learn about sequences and algorithms by programming BeeBots. They will start to see how technology can be used to support their learning and understand the world around them.
Computing in Years 1 - 6
We have recently introduced Kapow primary to support our computing planning. The units cover all aspects of the National Curriculum, as well as being regularly updated to ensure that it reflect new devices, apps, software and e-safety concerns.
The topics covered link to other areas of the curriculum as well as being interesting and engaging, for example, using data handling software to investigate the weather, creating Top Trumps style cards and reflecting the increased use of the internet and emails.
In order to support parents with online safety and to safeguard our children, we send out guides from the National Online Safety every month on different areas of online safety, such as gaming and social media. Please see the safeguarding section of the website for further information, the e-safety policy will also be added to the policies section soon.
The aim of computing at Avenue is give the children opportunities so that they are able to use technology efficiently and with ease, support them in their education but also day-to-day life.
