We are very pleased to introduce our new Specialist Computing Teacher, Miss Rogan who works alongside the class teachers to deliver our computing curriculum. Please see below for a detailed overview of our curriculum.
Miss Rogan also runs our very popular after school computing club. Children are thoroughly enjoying coding mini robots and creating their own stop-motion animations.
At St John’s all pupils will be delivered a high quality computing education that equips them with the ability to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. In order to be ready for and have the skills to fully participate in the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world the children will become digitally literate as they will be able to express themselves and develop their ideas through the use of information technology whilst also having full awareness of how to be safe online in a responsible, confident and creative way.
To enable our children at St John’s to be technologically ready they will be able to apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms, and data representation. Alongside this they will be competent at analysing patterns in computational terms through having repeated practical experience of writing computer programmes. To develop their ideas and ability to analyse and solve problems the children will also be able to evaluate and apply both familiar and new/unfamiliar technologies with confidence and with enthusiasm.
