Hello and welcome to Computing at St Matthew's!
We love technology in our school and take every opportunity to use it across the whole curriculum. Have a look at our vision for computing within our school and the photo's of some of the exciting activities and events we have run recently......
Coding in KS1 and KS2
What our children think about computing in school....
"I really enjoy using the iPads in Music. I am learning to play the guitar myself and when we use 'Garage Band' I can experiment with different sounds and instruments, my favourites are the piano, drums and guitar." Reece Yr6
"I love Monday afternoons because that's when we get to do 'Code Studio'
I am doing really well and at the moment I am learning how to put 'if'and 'or' statements into my coding". Daniel Yr5
"The best thing about using technology in year 4 is when we are allowed to 'play' (teacher code for 'Computer Science and Coding! ) and use Purple Mash to make bar charts for Maths and Science. Summer Yr4
"We have used the iPads and MacBooks to look at different countries in Geography. We researched their famous landmarks and the food people eat. My favourite thing to do on the iPads is 'Math Man' it's a bit like 'Pac Man' but it makes learning Maths really fun!" Alfie Yr3
" I like playing with Alex the Robot and Angry Birds on the iPads. Also it was cool to make an Avatar, I gave mine brown eyes and yellow hair. Avatars help to keep you safe and so you don't share too much information online." Addison Yr2
"I like the Rocket game (Code Studio) and I made a crazy sculpture using dots (Purple Mash 2Paint)." Ruben Yr1
Year 2 Created their own Avatars
