Phoenix Primary School ‘Where We Rise to the Challenge’

Computing

Welcome to our Computing page.

 

Computers are an essential part of everyday life in the 21st Century and our children have the world at their fingertips. Technology can be used in a number of amazing ways, but unfortunately if it is not used correctly it can have a negative effect.

 

We want our children to be digital superheroes and build their skills and knowledge to keep them safe and happy online and we need to work together to allow our children to do this.  We want them to use technology with confidence but also be able to talk to someone when something is wrong.  

    

We aim to teach the children to develop and master the necessary skills to use the resources  

  • To express, share and present ideas and information to others

  • To be explore their own ideas with creative tools

  • To learn new things and consolidate existing knowledge

  • To write their own simple programs using computer code

  • To be safe and responsible users of ICT resources

 

Computing at Phoenix gives children opportunities to use ICT resources in all areas of the curriculum as well as to learn discrete ICT skills. We also teach the children to use ICT resources safely and responsibly. We follow the National and EYFS Curriculum. 

 

At Phoenix the children have opportunities to use a range of technology including -  Ipads, MacBooks, digital cameras, Beebots and Smartboards. We are also extremely lucky to include a state of the art 4D immersive space to our list of resources. We select a wide range of software programs that support teaching and learning for all learners – both in school and at home. 

 

The children benefit from specialist computing lessons from Teachers from MGL as well as the Class teachers teaching discreet lessons. We want children to become skilled in their use of digital technology, learning through fun and engaging activities, creating high quality products and content, as well as having repeated, practical experience of writing code. We also want them to become safe, responsible and critical users of technology. 

PLEASE NOTE: This Friday, 15th November is Children in Need day 2019. Children can come into school in yellow clothing - instead of paying cash could you send in a tin, packet or an item of non perishable food that will be donated to the Food Bank for Children who are in need in our area. School will be closed to pupils on Thursday 12th December for Polling Station.
