Uplands Primary School


'We need technology in every classroom and in every student and teacher’s hand, because it is the pen and paper of our time, and it is the lens through which we experience much of the world.'

David Warlick



Here at Uplands, we aim to provide children with the opportunity to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. The core of computing is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Building on this knowledge and understanding, pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content. We aim to give pupils the opportunity to use a variety of devices to inform their computing knowledge ranging from: beebots, remote control cars, iPads, chromebooks and laptops.




Coding is a large part of the computing National Curriculum.  We use Scratch Junior and Scratch across the school to learn more about these skills.  We can use Scratch to create quizzes, games and animations.  Click the links below to see some our creations.

Computing Curriculum

We have carefully mapped out our curriculum to ensure the skills and knowledge are built upon as the children move through the school.  We have picked out the key small steps of knowledge that we want all children to retain at the end of each unit and that  build towards the end of unit outcome. You can look at these in the document below.
