At Budbrooke, we are so excited about our Computing Cirriculum this year. We have lots of exciting topics to dive into, for example our amazingly fascinating Coding topic or our interesting Online Safety topic. To help us with our learning we use Purple Mash. This website is super useful and can help our children access their computing cirriculum from home, weather they want to get a head start on 'To Dos' set by the teacher or practice their touch typing, there is so much to have a go at!
Budbrooke students have so many amazing oppotunities to use lots of different computing technologies. For exmple, Year 3 have had the exciting chance to use a green screen whereby they created their own news room to present 'Budbrooke's Breaking News'. In addition, in many subjects throughout the school students have the chance to use the school Ipads to help them with their immersive lessons.
It has been a brilliant experience being able to ask Budbrooke pupils about Computing. They speak with such confidence and joy. They love using Purple Mash and have a fantastic curiosity for learning in Computing. Children also love using our fantastic equipment. For example, the children have been given the experience of using a green screen to help them improve their online news reports. If you want to see the specific quotes see files under 'Pupil Voice'.

We have been really lucky to have multiple visitors come into school to have a look at our Computing cirriculum. They have all said how proud they are of the children. Budbrooke showed great confidence with Purple Mash and showed their interest and passion for Computing. Mr jones is incredibbly excited to see how far we can challenge and push our fantastic Computing maestros! Purple Mash also gives an oppotunity for our pupils to practise their touch typing. It provides clear instructions and challenges pupils to improve.
If your child has an extra passion in Computing then do not hesitate to ask Mr Jones for any advice. In addition, follow the links to these fantastic websites that can help your child develop the skills they need to perhaps have a job in computing one day.
