Computing

Welcome to The Grove Computing webpage.  We have a cross-curricular approach to our learning, which is reflected in the diverse ways in which we use technology in the school.  Our computing learning is embedded in all our other subjects, from literacy to music, numeracy to PE.  It enhances children's learning, supports the other subjects and makes children into confident, safe and respectful users. 
 
Click on the links below to see the Key 1 and 2 curriculum areas, and then look at some of the examples of our computing learning.
We've used green screen filming to make our literacy work come alive!

Lime Tree Class are learning how to create and improve algorithms using Probots.
We are expert coders and have made all sorts of great games that are connected with our learning.  Good luck trying to navigate Shackleton's ship!
We're proficient with lots of different programmes, including PowerPoint...
...Word...
...Excel...
...and many more.
 
We also use ICT to enhance our learning through websites such as Times Table Rock Stars.
 
We also have a Virtual Learning Platform hosted by eSchools that is used throughout our learning.  We share ideas, organise our lives, create blogs and learn to use social media in a responsible and respectful way. Here's an example of a chatroom discussion...
We've used stop motion animation to enhance our science work.

We encourage the use of technology in our homework.  Here's Milly's homework on Stonehenge.

And here's the blooper!

We've been using eSchools to produce blogs.  Here's Martha's blog about woolly mammoths.
