Computing

Computing at OLOL

At OLOL, we aim to prepare our children for the challenge of an ever changing and developing digital world. Our goal is that every child has the confidence and ability to access computing across the curriculum by providing them with opportunities to gain knowledge and develop skills which will equip them for the future.

Computing Curriculum Overview

In the National Curriculum 2014, Computing replaced the previous ICT curriculum. Computing relates to how computers and computer systems work, and how they are designed and programmed. The focus of the new computing curriculum moves towards programming and other aspects of computer science.

 

The Computing curriculum consists of three key strands:

  • Computer Science: Understanding algorithms and programming (e.g. Beebots and Crumbles)
  • Information Technology: To use technology purposefully and effectively (e.g. relates to word processing, PowerPoint and paint packages)
  • Digital Literacy: Understanding the use of the use of technology around us and how to communicate by using it safely which links to e-Safety ( e.g. Internet and email).

 

In September 2020, we were awarded Digital Schoolhouse status and we now offer FREE, bespoke computing workshops to other schools. Mrs Hodge, has run lots of workshops in our school such as fun coding Spheros in a Greek maze with Year 4 and Crumbles in Year 6 making Morse Code machines. If your school would like a workshop please contact Mrs Hodge on jhodge@ololprimary.co.uk.

 

Our ingenious computing workshops are aimed at local primary schools across the UK. Delivered by our expert network of Schoolhouses and lead teachers, you can experience our unique approach to play-based learning through innovative activities and free adaptable resources. Underpinned by evidence-based research and combined with groundbreaking careers education, the programme successfully bridges the gap between education and industry...'

VR Day

The children in Years 3, 4 and 5 had a exciting and informative VR Day on Wednesday 8th November. Duncan from PrimeVR came and shared his amazing knowledge of the Egyptians, Romans and Vikings. We learnt some incredible facts about all our Discover topics! Thanks to Stuart from PrimeVR for organising such an eye-opening day!
