Computing

Welcome to Computing
 
Computers are now part of everyday life. For most of us, technology is essential to our lives, at home and at work. 

At Our Lady Queen of Heaven we believe that ‘Computational thinking’ must be taught to prepare our pupils for this rapidly changing digital world.

How do we teach Computing in the curriculum?
 
We teach computing as a discrete subject but try to embed the learning of information communication technology in all subjects where we can.

We believe that all pupils have an entitlement to the computing curriculum regardless of gender, disability, ethnicity, social class or special learning needs and we will ensure that our provision meets the needs of all learners.

The teachers use a range of strategies to deliver the most appropriate teaching and learning styles relevant to the lesson. These will include:
  • Using the computer, iPads and/or an interactive whiteboard to demonstrate to a group or the whole class.
  • Using a range of technology to support and extend the children's learning
  • Planning for individual or paired work at a computer or iPad
  • Encouraging pupils to support each other and ensure opportunities for collaborative group work.

What is happening currently at school?

On the 9th February, PC Pearce came to support the national 'Safer Internet Day 2016.'

This focused on the theme of 'Playing your part for a better internet.' This event called upon young people, parents, carers, teachers to join together in helping to create a better internet. Children throughout the school took part in a range of activities and explored staying safe online...

We also held a parent e-safety workshop which supported the theme of the day. 

"I thought the workshop with PC Pearce was comprehensive. The CEOP video was thought provoking and I am really pleased that my child took part in the E-safety 2016 event. I now feel more aware of the potential risks online and how to prepare my child for this.' (OLQOH Parent)

-------------------------

In the Autumn Term we ran a 'Computer Club' linking mainly to coding and developing algorithms (Sets of instructions).

Linking to this we also held a special 'hour of code' linking to the global coding event. This linked to building code for 

Star Wars, Minecraft and even Frozen!
