All lessons build on prior learning and teachers support children to learn and remember more through:

  • Using Purple Mash units of work that ensure knowledge is built upon each year.
  • A balance of computer science, digital literacy and information technology taught discreetly in computing lessons.
  • A knowledge organiser linked to each unit of lessons in Purple Mash to support the use and retention of vocabulary linked to computing.
  • The use of technology being embedded across the wider curriculum.
  • Practical and safe use of technology within Purple Mash that enables the pupils to gradually build on their understanding and ability to apply knowledge in all areas of computing.
  • Discussion time embedded into lessons to support e-safety such that all pupils are aware of what to do and who to go to when they have concerns;
  • Elaborative questioning to challenge pupils to apply their learning in a range of ways.
  • Providing knowledge and understanding through the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including algorithms, logic, abstraction and data representation.
  • Opportunities for curriculum adaptation and challenge, pre teaching and interventions for those children who may require it, including those with SEN, throughout a topic or prior to a new topic being taught.
