Welcome to the Computing page!
Computing is taught at SMSJ through the Purple Mash scheme of work which is a exciting platform that has a topic based approach to learning.
Each unit has either an IT (Information Technology), DL (Digital Literacy) or CS (Computer Science) focus. Online safety is also taught in our Computing curriculum.
Please see below for our whole school curriculum overview to have a look at what your child will be learning each term in Computing. Towards the end of this page there are helpful links to help you with supporting your children online to ensure they are staying safe. If you would like any further information regarding our Computing Curriculum, please contact Miss Umerji.
Computing Curriculum Overview 2020-2021
Computing and our Mission Statement
Our mission statement underpins our computing curriculum. It is firmly based upon our belief that, ‘with God all things are possible’. It is encapsulated in our motto: Nurture, Inspire, Achieve.
Nurture: We care for, support and protect our children whilst they are growing and learning with us and encourage them to do the same for each other and the wider community. We recognise how vital it is that our children learn about online safety and this is at the heart of our computing curriculum and the first thing that every child learns.
Inspire: We inspire each child to become a confident, inquiring citizen with an enthusiasm and desire to learn and explore. We value and promote good understanding of computer programs and skills so our children can apply their knowledge in aspects of their everyday life. This will also broaden and inspire opportunities for their future.
Achieve: We develop each child to be capable of achieving in life, to develop academically and socially, and to succeed in school and beyond. With the growing use of technology in our society we instil the belief in our children that with their increasing knowledge of the computing world anything is possible.
Safer Internet Day 2021 - Tuesday 9th February
An internet we trust: exploring reliability in the online world.
Our children were thinking carefully about the question 'What does the phrase 'safe internet' mean to you?' Have a look at their amazing responses in the gallery below.
Please also look at the gallery after this to see super pieces of work produced by the children during our Safer Internet Day.
