Computing

Computing is taught in three annual modules in years 1 - 6 by class teachers.

Why is the teaching of computing important for primary schools?

Computing capability is an essential skill for life and enables learners to participate more readily in a rapidly changing world. Computing gives our pupils rapid access to ideas and experiences from a wide range of people, communities and cultures.

‘We live in a digital age, and children need to understand how the devices they’re using work and how to control them,’ says Clare Sutcliffe, co-founder of Code Club, a new initiative offering free after-school coding lessons to Year 5 and 6 children. ‘Raising a generation of children who can code will have massive benefits to our future economy.’

What is taught?

Pupils in years 1 - 6 are taught these modules each year:

Computer Skills - this includes typing and e-safety. 

Creating Content - this includes photo editing, creating games and website development. 

Coding - children learn to 'block code' from an early age and graduate to more complex laguages such as Scratch and Java.

Cooks Spinney use resources from Barefoot Computing and Hour of Code. We encouarge pupils to experiement with these resources at home if they have access to a PC, laptop or tablet.
