Computing

This year is an exciting year for Wensum! We have received brand new laptop manchines and iPads to help support the education of the children in our school. These are just some of the ways:

 

E-Safety

On the 9th February we celebrated Internet Safety Day. This required children to understand what is meant to be SMART- Safe, Measurable, Accept, Reliable and Tell. We also held an open workshop for families to help inform them how to keep their children safe online. You can download a link of websites that might be useful to use at home:

Think U Know – A website with loads of resources which teaches children how to behave and act online. These are the resources we use in school.

CEOP – The Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) works across the UK providing advice for parents, young people and children abut the dangers online.

NSPCC Online Safety– Some helpful tips from The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) including apps and games.

 

Coding

Coding and Animation have become a huge part of the curriculum. At the moment the children are using SCRATCH, Hour of Code and PivotAnimation to create and design their own games and animations as part of Golden Time. We have now installed more coding programmes, such as KODU, to expand this learning

 

Computing Club

We are now running a computer club after-school on a Wednesday. 3.15-4.15.
