Curriculum Intent for Computing
At Scargill, we believe that every child should be prepared for an ever changing world based around technology. It is our aim to provide all children with the skills and knowledge to use technology effectively, respectfully and safely in a positive way. We want the children to be able to use technology to be able to support their lives and education as well as having the skills to remain safe when being online.
We want the children to be curious by new technology whilst having the skills to adapt their prior knowledge to these new pieces of hardware and software. Furthermore, we want children, from reception to Y6, to be able to use vocabulary confidently when discussing and using these pieces of hardware and software. We want the children to be independent in their use of technology by the end of KS2 and have the confidence to be able to use technology to effectively.
In addition, we want to provide opportunities for the children to use their computing knowledge, skills and vocabulary in different areas across the curriculum which will further embed their learning from reception to Y6.
