Wokingham Primary Computing Schemes of Work - Sample

The full versions of the Schemes of Work are available at this link.

Wokingham has updated its Computing scheme of work to bring it in line with the new National Curriculum Computing Program of study for September 2014.

There have been some significant changes to the computing curriculum with a greater emphasis on pupils’ understanding of technology, e-safety and the development of programming skills. The ICT Team has worked alongside teachers to develop a new scheme of work to reflect these changes. The Wokingham computing curriculum is now ready to launch.

The Computing scheme covers all year groups Years 1 – 6. It is divided into Key stage 1, Lower KS2 and Upper KS2. The scheme has three overarching strands namely Digital Literacy, Computer Science and Information Technology.

Digital Literacy: Pupils learn about how to become good digital citizens they build their knowledge on how communication tools and the internet works whilst understanding the importance of keeping safe.

Computer Science: Pupils learn how the technology in our world is controlled through instructions and how computers need these programs to work. Pupils will learn how to write these programs using visual programming and simple text based languages.

Information Technology: Pupils learn how to use a range of creative tools to support learning across different subject areas, using multimedia, word-processing, digital imagery, manipulating sound and video. They learn how to collect sort and manipulate data to answer questions.           

Clear objectives and pupil outcomes allow teachers to make decisions about how they teach all aspects of the computing curriculum. A cross curricular approach is at the heart of the scheme and includes the flexibility to use any software your school already has in order to achieve these outcomes.             

You can purchase the licence for the schemes at £75 by contacting kathy.smedley@wokingham.gov.uk  A login will be provided to download the schemes and the supporting resources. Wokingham will invoice your schools directly. 

We also have an assessment tool available to support schools.
