What our pupils will learn

As a school, we have chosen the Purple Mash Computing Scheme of Work from Reception to Year 6. The scheme of work supports our teachers in delivering fun and engaging lessons which help to raise standards and allow all pupils to achieve to their full potential. We are confident that the scheme of work more than adequately meets the requirements for the National Curriculum for Computing and the Understanding the World – Technology section of the Early Years curriculum. Our EYFS curriculum also uses Purple Mash  units to support learning in Expressive Arts and Design.  The scheme of work provides flexibility and strong cross-curricular links as well as excellent supporting material for less confident teachers.

What our pupils will learn in Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS):

In EYFS, Computing is integrated into the EYFS Curriculum. Staff select resources from the Purple Mash EYFS curriculum   to support the teaching  of the  Early Years curriculum and the achievement of the Early Learning Goal for Technology. EYFS pupils are taught in variety of ways through adult-led and supported tasks and child-initiated learning in provision areas.                      To see the EYFS Curriculum please click below:

What our pupils will learn in Key Stage 2:

As children move into Key Stage 2, the Purple Mash computing curriculum is taught to a full class. These sessions are weekly and last approximately one hour. Year 3 pupils follow the Year 3 curriculum planning and there is a rolling programme in place for Years 4, 5 and 6. This ensures that pupils have access to the full curriculum within the mixed-age group structure of our classes. The Subject Leader for Computing teaches pupils in Years 4, 5 and 6.
