Manor Leas Junior Academy
Intent - What is our vision?
We endeavour to provide the children of Manor Leas Junior Academy with computational knowledge and skills, and opportunity to confidently demonstrate these, through a combination of discrete and cross-curricular teaching. As with many skills, computing skills are best acquired with hands on, practical work. The children are given daily opportunities to use and explore a range of technology. In doing this, children are practicing the safety, respect and empathy required to operate online safely as they enter the digital world we live in today.
Implemation - What do we do?
The children at Manor Leas Junior Academy have access to a large number of devices on which they can learn, research and create; IPads, Chromebooks and Laptops are just some of the hardware available to our students. Our computing curriculum plan allows teachers to cover the national curriculum for computing and through enrichment children find a deeper curiosity for computing.
Every child has access to their own Purple Mash Login which is used in school and can be used at home too. From making art to designing and creating computer games, Purple Mash offers a platform for the children at Manor Leas Junior Academy to explore and develop their computing knowledge in a safe and fun environment.
As a school we subscribe to many different learning platforms which are also available to the children at home. These include Spelling Shed, Times Table Rock Stars, MyOn and more. These platforms provide great content and proven outcomes for children using them inside and out of school.
