Computers are now part of everyday life. For all our children, technology is an essential part of their lives, at home, at play and eventually at work. Computational thinking is a skill children must learn if they are to participate effectively in this digital world. They must also understand the importance of keeping themselves and others safe online and realise their responsibility to ensure this. At Coxheath, we carry out online safety assemblies every Tuesday. The digital world is evolving quickly and by delivering these assemblies from Projectevolve, it allows us to discuss and explore the most current issues arising online in the 21st Century.
We use Purple Mash as the source of our Computing curriculum. Purple Mash is a fantastic resource which provides well sequenced units of work that ensure children build on prior learning throughout their time here at Coxheath Primary. Through the Purple Mash programme of study children learn how a wide range of computing systems work. Children look at a wide range of computing systems which includes coding, how to blog, develop their own games, quizzes, spreadsheets, databases, word processing skills and many more.
