Corpus Christi Primary School

Computing


Curriculum Intent

Our aim is to provide a high-quality computing education which equips children to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. The curriculum will teach children key knowledge about how computers and computer systems work, and how they are designed and programmed. Learners will have the opportunity to gain an understanding of computational systems of all kinds, whether or not they include computers. By the time they leave, children will have gained key knowledge and skills in the three main areas of the computing curriculum: computer science (programming and understanding how digital systems work), information technology (using computer systems to store, retrieve and send information) and digital literacy (evaluating digital content and using technology safely and respectfully). The objectives within each strand support the development of learning across the key stages, ensuring a solid grounding for future learning and beyond. 

Catholic Social Teachings

The Computing curriculum at Corpus Christi provides many opportunities for children to develop their knowledge and understanding of the principles of Catholic Social Teaching, and to action that commitment through good works and words that show we live our faith in our community as a force for good.

Pupil Voice

 Amelia - Year 1 

I like computing because I get to Scratch Jr and I can make my sprite move and give it sounds. 

Daniel - Year 2

I have enjoyed computing. I can make a sprite move on Scratch Jr with an algorithm. I am going to carry on learning computing when I grow up. It is lots of fun!

 Iqra - Year 3 

I enjoyed making my powerpoint presentation about myself and then I presented it to my friends. I have also learnt how to stay safe on the internet and why it is important.

 

Macie - Year 6

Computing has encouraged creativity in most of us. Whilst computing, we often use scratch to code educational games. Normally with computing I like that we have a lot of fun whilst still learning.
