Computing

At Cranborne,  Computing is taught weekly in each class. It is a popular subject as lessons are fun and engaging. Computing is taught using an online learning platform called Purple Mash and the children use either ipads or laptops to access the curriculum. The computing curriculum is divided into three areas; Computer Science, Digital Literacy and Information Technology. Online safety is embedded into the computing curriculum. For more information about online safety at Cranborne please click here.

We have invested in a learning platform called Purple Mash. This is a web-based platform where the children can log on and access a range of games and activities linked to the national curriculum.

This year all our Computing will be taught using these programs as well as using some of the apps we have used previously.
Homework will also be set using this website.
