At Diamond Wood Community Academy we believe that a strong computing knowledge will help children when using technology in everyday life.
Throughout school we use a range of technology for children to learn and progress in different ways. Children will use these different pieces of technology from starting in Nursery all the way through to Year 2.
Using the scheme Purple Mash has helped support children’s learning of the different areas within Computing. Children will use this scheme to play games as well as enjoying different activities, such as pictograms and learning to operate safely online. Using the different pieces of technology as well as using the scheme develops children’s confidence in working online and being independent to complete different activities and tasks.
When leaving school children should be able to operate safely and independently on technology such as laptops and Ipads while also completing different tasks.
