At Birches Green Junior School we aim to deliver the skills needed to understand the objectives within the new curriculum topic areas, where these will be of benefit to our children. Computing is delivered both through cross-curricular opportunities and as a timetabled lesson. The purpose built ICT suite is timetabled for each class to use during the week and children have access to networked computers and secure internet use in each classroom. We are constantly reflecting on the technology needs and aim to provide children with the skills and equipment that facilitates their drive to be life-long learners.

The overview for each year is below:

Curriculum content

In Birches Green the children are taught to:

  • design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals, including controlling or simulating physical systems,
  • use reasoning to explain how some simple algorithms work and to detect and correct errors in algorithms and programs,
  • understand and us computer networks including the internet; how they can provide multiple services, such as the world wide web; and the opportunities they offer for communication and collaboration,
  • use search technologies effectively, appreciate how results are selected and ranked and evaluate digital content,
  • select, use and combine a variety of software (including internet services) on a range of digital devices to design and create a range of programs and content that accomplish given goals, including collecting, analysing, evaluating and presenting data and information.
