At Ightenhill Primary School, computing is taught as a discrete lesson during the afternoon. Computing skills are taught using a variety of different technology including computers, laptops, tablets, cameras, bee bots and voice recorders. The skills taught within the lessons are then applied to different areas of the curriculum such as Maths, English, Science and PE.
As a school we use the Purple Mash software programme to support our Computing curriculum from Reception to Year 6. It is an award winning scheme of work that enables children to explore and enhance their computing knowledge in a fun and creative way. It is supported by over 25 open ended educational tools and games.
