Our Computing curriculum is delivered by Junior Jam.
During their time at school our children will develop and build their knowledge and understanding of the increasingly technological world in which we live. They will gain essential skills which will allow them to create programs, films, music and a range of other content, whilst encouraging them to express themselves and develop their own ideas using the latest apps.

Our Digital Leaders are an important part of of our school and do many jobs from ensuring there is paper for the upstairs printer, ensuring the Ipads are available for use in class, to online assemblies for KS1 and KS2.
Our Y4 and Y5 DL have been busy teaching the Y1s how to log on to the computers using their unique ID and password.

Spring first half 2022. This half term all classes are learning about programming. Below is a short powerpoint showing the progression of skills from EYFS through to Y6. This will give you a little insight into what your child will be learning now and how they will build on this knowledge as they move through school.

At St Gregory's we have recently begun using the excellent National Centre for Computing Education (NCCE) resources.
(The NCCE are funded by the DfE and their vision is for 'every child in every school in England to have a world-leading computing education.' )

EYFS & Computing
EYFS explore technology in a range of ways throughout the year. They have regular sessions in the computer suite learning to use and navigate a desktop computer. They also use IPADS and laptops where appropriate in class. They are able to access various resources using QR codes. In addition to this a range of technology is introduced into the learning environment so that children have access to technology in continuous provision throughout the year.
