Computing

Member of staff responsible for Computing: Mr Cooke / Mr Youson

Overview

At All Souls we try to use computers and new technologies as much as possible to enhance our curriculum and help children learn key skills. All classes have a minimum of one lesson per week in our specialist Learning Hub to develop their computing skills.

In line with the new National Curriculum, we have created our own scheme of work for computing. Children will learn skills across a range of topics including coding and programming their own games and apps! There is also opportunity for them to develop and refine other computer life skills such as typing, word processing, data handling, creating and editing pictures etc. Central to all of the work covered is how to use the Internet in an effective way including how to keep safe, protect our information and about cyber-bullying.

Children also have access to a range of equipment and software such as a 3D printer and green screens where they can use their creative computing skills to help them make their own movies, vlogs, animations, compose music and more!

Extra Curriculum

As well as computing lessons children are encouraged to attend our extra-curricular clubs. These include coding, web design, 3D printing, photography, photo editing and much more. These sessions are run by staff throughout the year giving a large number of pupils the opportunity to take part.
