Computing Intent at Holy Family

At our school we want our children to be active participants in a digital world by fostering children’s thirst for new experiences. Through teaching computing, we will build on prior learning and equip our children to be resilient in the ever changing technology world. Children will be independent and collaborative learners and learn how to use technology responsibly and safely to develop their love for computing in future life.  

Year 1 have been learning all about programming computers to do complete a simple task, we have dressed characters on the laptops using the mouse and click button. We also created our own paintings using the laptops, learning how to move around the screen using the touch mouse and click button and creating our own designs. 

Y3 - Animation

Computing in Year Two

Year 6 - Safer Internet Day

Internet Safety Day Year Two 2023

In Year Two we looked at Internet Safety and really focused on how to stay safe online. As a class we then produced information leaflets and presented them to the rest of the class. 

FS2 Safer Internet Day 2023

Children in FS2 discussed all the different types of technology they have at home. They made a ladder to rank their favourite at the top. Children answered lots of different questions and were made aware of do's and dont's when using the internet.

Year 1- Safer Internet Day!

In Year 1 we watched the video 'Hanni's window' all about the magical scenes Hanni see's outside of her window until one day she see's something she did not like. We discussed Hanni's feelings and how she could make those feelings better by speaking about her feelings. We then discussed how to be safe on the internet and what to do if we ever experienced the same feelings as Hanni. We created our own magical windows of things we really love. 

Year 1 have enjoyed learning all about data during Spring 1, exploring tally charts and pictograms. Year 1 have collected data from the class by voting for their favourite things such as colours, fruits and furble's and then inputting that data on to tally charts. Then using their tally charts Year 1 have been able to transfer that data on to pictograms, exploring the x and y axis. They have enjoyed learning how to use computers, learning how to turn a computer on, input a password, use the mouse and left click and right click. 

Year 5- iCrypto

The children in Year 5 have enjoyed encrypting messages using a cypher and then decoding them. 

Year 1 - iProgram

In Year One, programming begins using simple maps like in the picture, and children use directional language such as forwards, backwards, left and right, to navigate the map. 

Year 4 - Iprogram Unit 2

In Year 4, the children have been looking at Iprogram Unit 2 in Computing. The children have been working collaboratively to use the software Turtle Art to make their own algorithms. The children have been creating and testing different sequences of statements to see if they can get their turtle to move. The children have been using vocabulary such as: angle, sequence, forward, backwards, left, right and degrees. 

Year 2- ipublish


Year 5 have been learning different ways of communicating secret information. We really enjoyed making our own ciphers and sending messages using Semaphore. We also learnt how to send messages using Morse code.


Year 3 - iConnect

In Year 2, we have looked at how computers have developed over time. We spent time looking at the World's first computer, which was the size of a room!

Year 2 Safer Internet Day

Year Two took part in numerous, different activities for Safer Internet Day. For the first activity the children had to sort information into personal information that should be kept private, and offline and information that is safe to share online. They sorted information such as date of birth, a photo of your food, etc. We then discussed why certain information should be kept private and why other information is safe to post online. The next activity was called relationship rings. This was an opportunity for children to reflect on the different relationships that they can have in their lives and the degree of the trust that might be placed in each relationship. The next activity was called who helps you? The children had to draw who they would go to if they needed help with anything online. Once they finished drawing their trusted adults they labelled and explained why they are trustworthy. In our final activity we displayed our creativity skills. The children imagined they are creating their own user for a magic castle game. They had to create an avatar, username and password for the game. We discussed why using an avatar and a nickname as a username is safer than using a real photo of ourselves or our real name.
