At Fearnville we follow the Bradford Computing scheme of work. The children from years 1 to 6 are taught about the following concepts:
- Computer science (e.g. coding using programmes like Scratch you can use this for free here https://scratch.mit.edu/ or have a play on https://code.org/learn )
- Data handling (e.g. databases)
- Information literacy (e.g. using the internet to support them finding information)
- Media (e.g. using technology to create and use images)
- E-safeguarding (sometimes called E-safety)
E-safeguarding is a central part of every lesson as we know it is important to prepare our children for the benefits and risks of using technology. We want to create Digital Citizens who can use technology to support all aspects of their learning, at home and at school.
We have recently had a visit from the Police to deliver E-Safeguarding lessons. One of the issues picked up was that a lot of our children have their own Youtube channels.
