We teach computing through all curriculum areas.
As technology is evolving all the time we strive to exploit the opportunities that technology brings to engage children as well as ensuring they are well equipped for a digital future.
By using wireless headphones to create an interactive narrative learning experience we can inspire children to dive into an imaginary world using the technology as a vehicle. We have 75 iPads in the school supporting children's learning in all subjects using a range of apps as well as providing them with key computing skills such as coding and presentation. We also have banks of PCs and laptops. Home learning is supported by using an online literacy and maths programme where the children are rewarded in assembly for their success. We involve the wider community by giving children real life experiences in the computing world through our partnership with BP where the children take part in robotic coding clubs and workshops.
We take internet safety very seriously. Through assemblies and lessons we ensure that all children know their rights and responsibilities and teach them how to stay safe when using the internet. We also run regular workshops for parents.
Mayflower is proud to provide a firm foundation for all children as well as providing engaging learning experiences through new technology.
