For the children at The Mead Infant and Nursery School technology is becoming an ever increasing integral part of day to day life. We recognise the potential that technology has for supporting, enriching and enhancing teaching and learning in all areas of the curriculum. Our curriculum ensures that we equip our children as active participants in the digital world we live in. We aim to deliver a high quality computing curriculum which ensures that children become digitally literate.
Children have discreet teaching of ICT skills as well as opportunities to use ICT to support learning in other areas of the curriculum. Purple Mash supports the teaching and learning of computing providing exciting curriculum focused activities, creative tools, programs and games to support and inspire creative learning every day.
The children develop their skills, starting in reception with mouse control, keyboard skills, saving and printing work. They draw pictures, write and use the internet to carry out research. They then progress to more complex skills such as data analysis and coding. Pupils will learn how to use technology safely and identify where to go for help and support when they have concerns. Children also have access to hardware such as cameras, video cameras and programmable robots.
