The study of Computing at Corpus Christi follows the National Curriculum. Our DREAM curriculum offer uses Twinkl PlanIt Computing and eAware to teach the Computing objectives.
The children are able to use their logical skills to develop their knowledge and understanding in the areas of e-safety, programming, multimedia, technology and data handling.
Our DREAM curriculum progressively teaches practical skills, providing opportunities for children to use their computing skills in appropriate and interesting scenarios, using software such as Scratch, Flowol, SketchUp and Word Processing packages.
We are fotunate to have a full bank of 20 iPads, a bank of laptops and a computer suite to develop and utilise children's computing skills.
Computing is taught weekly and has five topics for each year group, covering different types of software and skills, developing understanding across each key stage, to ensure progress is made and skills are being used and expanded on.
Online Safety is a vital part of our DREAM curriculum.
Every year group covers a topic on online safety and being e-aware, covering topics from secure passwords to sharing information and data protection and copywrite. eAware supports pupils to develop their understanding of online safety. As an online platform, it constantly updates and refreshes to meet current needs and trends in e-safety to ensure our children have an up to date knowledge of the dangers of online use and strategies to keep themselves and others safe.
This is paired with our PSHE topics, which include a Digital Wellbeing unit, to support children in their mental health and wellbeing, to stay safe online.
