Computing Curriculum Intent
At Bushfield Road Infant School we use a structured sequence of lessons which enables our teachers to ensure that they have covered the skills required to meet the aims of the national curriculum. Cross-curricular links are also important in supporting other areas of learning. Our lesson plans and resources help children to build on prior knowledge at the same time as introducing new skills and challenges. The content allows for a broad, deep understanding of computing and how it links to children's lives. It offers a range of opportunities for consolidation, challenge and variety. Children will develop problem-solving skills and learn to evaluate and apply information technology.
Teachers use technology to engage children and enhance teaching and learning across the curriculum but it does not replace the skills of reading a book or writing. It enables children to become responsible, safe, competent, confident and creative users of information technology. Children will see the digital world as part of their world, extending beyond school, and understand that they have choices to make. They will be confident and respectful digital citizens going on to lead happy and healthy digital lives in the future.
