Computing

Autumn

  • Understand computer networks including the internet; how they can provide multiple services, such as the world wide web; and the opportunities they offer for communication and collaboration
  • Use search technologies effectively, appreciate how results are selected and ranked, and be discerning in evaluating digital content
  • Select, use and combine a variety of software (including internet services) on a range of digital devices to design and create a range of programs, systems and content that accomplish given goals, including collecting, analysing, evaluating and presenting data and information
  • Use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly; recognise acceptable/unacceptable behaviour; identify a range of ways to report concerns about content and contact
  • Evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems
  • Be responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.

Spring

  • Design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals, including controlling or simulating physical systems; solve problems by decomposing them into smaller parts

  • Use sequence, selection, and repetition in programs; work with variables and various forms of input and output.

  • Use logical reasoning to explain how some simple algorithms work and to detect and correct errors in algorithms and programs

  • Select, use and combine a variety of software (including internet services) on a range of digital devices to design and create a range of programs, systems and content that accomplish given goals, including collecting, analysing, evaluating and presenting data and information

  • Understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation

  • Analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems

  • Evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems

  • Be responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.

Summer

Pupils should be taught to:

  • design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals, including controlling or simulating physical systems; solve problems by decomposing them into smaller parts.
  • use sequence, selection, and repetition in programs; work with variables and various forms of input and output.
  • use logical reasoning to explain how some simple algorithms work and to detect and correct errors in algorithms and programs.
  • select, use and combine a variety of software (including internet services) on a range of digital devices to design and create a range of programs, systems and content that.
  • accomplish given goals, including collecting, analysing, evaluating and presenting data and information.
  • use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly; recognise acceptable/unacceptable behaviour; identify a range of ways to report concerns about content and contact.

The national curriculum for computing aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems.

are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.
