This generation of children have lived all their lives surrounded by the digital world. It is all they know and therefore they require us to facilitate opportunities to utilize these tools throughout our work.
Whilst we place a clear emphasis on using digital tools to enhance aspects of our learning, we do not over-immerse our young children in technology everyday. We select the most appropriate moments and opportunities to use digital tools to aid and enhance our lessons, learning and experiences.
Our computing curriculum is broad whilst being focused on skill building as children progress through the years. Designed in a fun and engaging way, Purple Mash Curriculum ensures students gain the basics as well as moving on to more complex skills which are covered by specifically designed games, educational tools and plans.
With our regular S.T.E.M Lego lessons, we go further! These lessons build on basic coding and engineering skills and bring to life robotics and control technology. These are some of the most exciting and creative learning opportunities in school each week.
Finally, we will be introducing our staff and students to the virtual reality world in August 2022. We aim to offer even more opportunities that will really benefit students of all ages. From leaping out of a textbook into a 3D image or video, to being able to take children to places around the world without them moving from their table in class is a truly exciting prospect.
