Why do we learn Computing?
Individual and Unique:
The aim of the computing curriculum is to motivate children to learn, but also to embrace the individual and unique of all. Each child has their own way of learning, and if they are able to express this freely it will put them in an advantageous position to tackle and utilise the computing technologies of the future.
Traditionally the concepts of wonderful and computing would have been mutually exclusive. However, the changing world has produced technologies capable of many things, including embracing the wonderful of the world around us. We will aim to allow the children to become engaged with the wonderful through the diversity of the curriculum.
The computing curriculum aims to use computers as a method to learn about computer science and computational thinking, but in the process train children to think logically so they are able to solve non-computing problems. A logical mind will enable children to flourish whichever direction they choose in life.
Through adaptive teaching we will aim to deliver a curriculum that meets the needs of all. Learning will be consolidated in small steps, through variation and through deepening understanding. This mastery approach will allow children to learn at their own pace, increasing their fullness of computing.
