 “Whether you want to uncover the secrets of the universe, or you want to pursue a career in the 21st century, basic computer programming is an essential skill to learn”.                  Stephen Hawking

Computer Science Intent, Implementation and Impact

Intent

Computers are now part of everyday life. For most of us, technology is essential to our lives, at home and at work. ‘Computational thinking’ is a skill pupils must be taught if they are to be ready for the workplace and able to participate effectively in this digital world.

The national curriculum for computing aims to equip young people with the foundation skills, knowledge and understanding of computing they will need for the rest of their lives. Through the national curriculum programme of study for computing, they will learn how computers and computer systems work, they will design and build programs, develop their ideas using technology and create a range of content.

At Harris Mayflower, we provide pupils with a high-quality computing education which in turn equips them to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world.

 

Computing comprises three main areas:

  • Computer Science -understanding how computers and computer systems work and learning how to create using technology
  • Information Technology (the ability to use technology through a range of devices and tools)
  •  Digital Literacy (having the skill to communicate and express ideas using digital media and technology; whilst staying safe online).                                                                                                                            Our aims within computing are to teach pupils:
  • The principles of information and computations
  • How digital systems work
  • Programming and coding
  • To use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content
  • To use, express and develop ideas through information technology.

 

Implementation

At Harris Mayflower, we have implemented our Computer Science curriculum, through the following ways:-

  • Weekly 1 hour Computer Science lessons
  • Lessons well-resourced through planning and equipment – i.e:- Mac suite, laptops and iPads
  • Key vocabulary included at the beginning of each lesson with definitions
  • Digital Leaders in each class to support learners
  • Progression in topics and across year groups building on previous skills learnt
  • In Early Years, pupils are taught to recognise that a range of technology is used in places such as homes and schools.  They select and use technology for particular purposes – this is within the Understanding the World Early Learning Goal.
  • All the lessons are high-quality with relevant online resources, the teachers can adapt lessons for our pupils.

     

    Across the key phases, the following areas will be taught:

 

KS1

KS2

Computer Science

Understand what algorithms are, how they are implemented as programs in digital devices, and that programme execute by following precise and unambiguous instructions.

 

Create and debug simple programs.

 

Use logical reasoning to predict the behaviour of simple programs.

Design, write and debug programs that accomplish specifics including controlling or simulating physical systems, solve problems by decomposing them into small parts.

 

Use sequence, selection and repetition in programs; work with variables and various forms of input and output.

 

Use logical reasoning to explain how some simple algorithms work and to detect and correct errors in algorithms and programs.

 

Understand computer networks including the internet; how they can provide multiple services linking the World Wide Web.

 

Appreciate how search results are selected and ranked.

Information Technology

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content.

Use search technologies effectively.

 

Select, use and combine a variety of software (including internet services) on a range of digital devices. As part of this design and create a range of programs, systems and content that accomplish given goals, including collecting analysis, evaluating and presenting data and information.

 

Digital Literacy

 

Recognise common uses of information technology beyond the academy.

 

Use internet technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private; identify where to go for help and support when they have concerns about content or contact on the internet or other online technologies.

 

Understand the opportunities networks provide for communication and collaboration.

 

Be discerning in evaluation of digital content.

 

Use internet technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private; identify where to go for help and support when they have concerns about content or contact on the internet or other online technologies.

Impact

Evidence of progression in computing learning is evidenced in each class teacher book to record assessment for learning each session.  At Harris Mayflower we believe that when assessing computing it is important to look for evidence of knowledge of understanding as well as technical skills. Asking pupils to talk about what they have learned as well as showing the work they have completed, will provide important evidence of learning.

Teachers use a range of assessment tools to monitor and identify progress, this includes:

  • Termly assessments
  • Quizzes
  • Reflections and pupil voice in big books for each lesson
  • Low Stakes testing
  • Data
