Unity is Strength

Computing

Computing at Bruce Grove Primary

Rationale

Computing at Bruce Grove prepares pupils so they are ready to participate in a world increasingly influenced by technology. Our broad and balanced curriculum is exciting and engaging, with a spiral structure, where learning builds upon the previous year’s knowledge, giving children the opportunity to revisit and extend their knowledge simultaneously. The NCCE Teach Computing scheme uses an unplugged approach, which allows children to access computing concepts without the use of a computer, allowing children to access computing concepts without the use of a computer making lessons both engaging and accessible to a variety of learners, resulting in children being more confident with computational thinking before applying it in a computer based setting.
