Computing

At Dee Point Primary School we aim to provide children with a broad and balanced computing curriculum. We teach computing skills throughout all lessons to enhance all subjects. We have woven computing throughout the whole school curriculum to take advantage of the many devices we have at our disposal. This allows for a very engaging and interactive learning experience.  Children's work is saved on our online blog "See Saw" and children are able to view all their digital learning in one safe and accessible space.  Computing is also taught discretely through  computing sessions each week.

We work in collaboration with Hi Impact to deliver a series of high quality computing workshops. We use Hi Impact's years of technical and teaching expertise alongside their cutting edge technology to deliver truly amazing sessions. These have included: stone age stop motion animations, green screen sessions, robot coding workshops as well as many more

The computing curriculum

Online safety: - Here we teach about keeping safe online. We learn about how to keep our information safe online. We also learn about the impact of our actions online. We have set up age specific workshops in collaboration with the local police officers which illustrate the dangers of the internet.

Programming : We first focus on coding sprites and avatars online. The school uses the digital resource 'Code studio' to teach children the basics of coding and algorithms. Children then use this knowledge to program our robots in school. We use 'Lego We Do,' Spheros, Bee Bots, Code bugs as well as many more robots to perform a series of engaging and exciting tasks.
