At Randlay Primary School, we use Purple Mash and Teach Computing Curriculum schemes of work to deliver high quality Computing sessions to our children from Year 1 - 6.






In EYFS, children continue to be immersed in technology on a daily basis through use of ipads and role play areas that feature digital devices. We are hoping to purchase our own Cubetto soon (as shown below)




Useful Documents

After school on Tuesdays, some very talented Year 5 and 6 children visit Base 10 to learn some cool, quirky and clever computing tips from Mr Phillips. This term, they will be focusing on powerpoints tips and tricks, involving animation. They will also be developing their coding skills through Scratch, and will get to experience how to create and edit movies the Mr Phillips way. Watch this space....

Computing Book Look

Each Monday this term, we have been fortunate to invite Richard Smith from Amazing ICT back into our school, for some specialist teaching and learning in Computing areas. The children and staff have found these sessions valuable and exciting, particularly when little robots have come out to play!
