“Technology can become the “wings” that will allow the educational world to fly farther and faster than ever before – if we allow it.” – Jenny Arledge, Educator
Computers are now a part of everyday life and for most of us, technology is an integral aspect, at home and at work.
What we want to achieve
At Sunnyfields, our computing curriculum through Purple Mash, equips pupils with critical thinking skills to creatively and innovatively solve computational problems, develop an insight into natural and artificial systems and, participate responsibly and safely in the digital world. Our curriculum has deep links with all areas of the curriculum and provides children with the necessary skills for adult life and employment within the ever-changing technological environment we live in, whilst considering their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
How we want to achieve it
As a 2Simple Centre of Excellence, Purple Mash (our computing curriculum scheme of work) is ingrained in all aspects of the pupil's learning. It allows them to use creative tools, programs and games to support and inspire creative learning every day and in all areas of the curriculum. From poems to newspapers, masks and 3D models, animations and textured paintings, Purple Mash supports the creative and scientific skills throughout the year. Pupils use many different devices e.g. laptops, iPads and Chromebooks to access their work on Purple Mash through individual logins and they can continue their learning anywhere and anytime. To help enrich the learning experience, all classrooms are equipped with interactive touch boards and audio equipment.
Our long term curriculum map sets out the specific skills and knowledge children will learn in each year group, in order to ensure pupils become digitally literate and develop necessary skills suitable for future workplace and actively participate in the digital world.
