Computing @ Spire
At Spire Junior school we hope to prepare our children for a future in an environment which is shaped by technology. We intend to build a computing curriculum that ensures that by the time the children leave Spire Junior School, they will have gained key knowledge and skills in the three main areas of the computing curriculum: computer science (programming and understanding how digital systems work), information technology (using computer systems to store, retrieve and send information) and digital literacy (evaluating digital content and using technology safely and respectfully).
Computing skills are taught both discretely and through cross curricular links to help support other areas of learning across the school. The school has two class sets of iPads and each class has access to the iPads every week. Through the use of iPads our computing curriculum is fun, engaging and of a high quality. The children’s’ learning is evident on Seesaw (a digital platform where pupils can share and create work) when learning in computing and when iPads have been used to support other areas of the curriculum.
