Computing Learning at Batchley First School
Our computing curriculum is designed to inform how we plan for children to grow their computing knowledge year by year and for us to assess how well they are improving.
Progression is a cumulative experience of developing substantive knowledge (the “know what”), whilst using and applying disciplinary and procedural knowledge (the “know how to”) gained and made secure by repeated practice in different contexts.
Learning is further embedded by the application of, and the developing forward from, what has previously been learned and remembered into new concepts and contexts.
An overview of what we strive to achieve can be found below.
