The use of information and communication technology is an integral part of the Mary Bassett curriculum and is a key skill for everyday life. Teachers plan computing lessons to focus on the use of relevant tools to apply skills for a purpose, including computers, tablets and programmable robots. Through these learning experiences, children are able to acquire, organise, manipulate, communicate and present information. At the centre of teaching and learning, children are encouraged and supported to develop a confident and safe approach to computing and the use of ICT, with the understanding of the capabilities and flexibility of their resources. At Mary Bassett school, we understand that Computing and ICT will continue to play a major part in the children’s life at home, in further education and places of work. Therefore, teachers plan a range of cross curricular learning experiences, where children are able to use their computing skills and knowledge for a practical purpose, in order to ensure that their skills within the subject are effective and transferrable life skills.
Curriculum learning for each year group in Computing lessons is outlined below. The progression of children's skills and knowledge in Computing is outlined in the MBLS Learning Scale. If you have any queries regarding how any aspect of Computing is taught in your child’s year group then please contact their class teacher in the first instance.
Design and Technology teaching at The Mary Bassett Lower School is coordinated by Mrs Charlotte.
