This page will give you more information about the curriculum in Computing and what your child will be learning during their time at Kilkhampton Junior and Infant School.
We use the Rising Stars produced 'Switched on Computing' to help us deliver the curriculum and we deliver this on a two year rolling programme. In the document section below you can find details of the topics covered in 'Switched on Computing' as well as a progression of skills and our aims and objectives for the teaching of Computing at Kilkhanmpton Junior and Infant School.
The children have been designing their own toys inspired by Roald Dahl characters. They had to think of how their interactive toy would work and then program these on Scratch. Whilst working on these, the children had to overcome any errors or bugs that occurred and use logical thinking to fix them. Here are a few examples of some of the finished products.
In Key Stage Two we have been learning how to manipulate images. Year 3 and 4 in Widemouth class learnt how to take a single image to turn it into a piece of art inspired by Andy Warhol's 'Campbell's Soup'.
In Upper Key Stage Two pupils have manipulated their own art-work to turn it into a front cover for their topic books.
In Widemouth class, we have been creating maths games in ICT. The children had to design and program their games to be challenging and fun for their chosen audience.
