Computing

  • Animation

    At Broad Heath, we give the children time to develop animation skills. When children are learning about the skills required to animate using physical and digital resources, they are also developing their communication, teamwork and concentration skills.

  • Coding

    With it being so important for children’s future opportunities, we try to give children time to code and program. Children are encouraged to experiment with a range of coding languages and to debug errors themselves. We run a programming club alongside our curriculum to increase interest and awareness of an important 21st century skill. In Programming club, children are given fun and exciting ways to learn to code. Minecraft is extremely popular as you can see!

  • Developing Speaking and Listening

    At Broad Heath, children use computing skills to enrich their learning and experiences in lots of different ways. By doing this, it not only gives the children a different experience, it also allows them to share their work with friends, family and peers to reinforce the learning. Below are some examples of the wonderful things the children have done.

  • This week, children in KS1 have been developing animation skills in the afternoons. Please see the project week video for more information, but here are the end outcomes from all their hard work.

  • This morning we have been developing our knowledge and understanding of positional language. We programmed the beebots to show which direction they need to travel in to get to the treasure or to a place of interest on the map. We are developing our knowledge of forwards, backwards, left and right and we could use this vocabulary to describe where the beebot was going.

  • Year 3 Computing

    Today we had a great afternoon learning to debug and programme What is bug? Why do we need to debug? What are the names of the two types of bugs we have looked at? Give an example for each.

At Broad Heath, Computing skills are integrated into our enriching curriculum. Computing skills are used within lessons to support the learning and enable the children to make better progress. The skills the children develop through Computing lessons are then applied and used across the curriculum in a variety of ways.
