Our high-quality computing education at St Anthony’s aims to inspire pupils to become active participants in a digital world, through an understanding of the importance of technology so they gain life-skills to enable them to embrace, use and develop new technology in a rapidly changing society with a passion to continue to develop their love for computing in future life.
Computing is taught by class teachers in KS1 and from a Computing Expert teacher in KS2 following a sequential progressive curriculum. Each class has a computer session for an hour weekly in alternate half terms.
Please see below the impact of our Computing Curriculum across school.

Our computing in action across KS2 with our visiting expert Computing teacher.
Year 3 Computing - Garage Band
This half term, Year 3 are using the Garage Band app to develop their computing skills through making music! The children have selected and compiled a sequence of sound in pairs to create their own composition.
Year 4 Computing Curriculum - Music Makers
We really enjoyed exploring the features of ' Dubstep'. We investigated aspects such as tempo, drum beat and wobble bass and learnt how to incorporate a drop section. We worked successfully to create our own 'Dubstep' styled track.
Year 4 Amazing Algorithms
We explored 'Hopscotch' and learnt how to use algorithms. We made good use of our maths skills when calculating what angles to use to create our patterns. Have a look at what we created.
Year 5 Internet Safety - Be SMART!
Computing in Year 6
Year 6 have thoroughly enjoyed all their Computing sessions this year! They have used GarageBand to compose a wonderful song as well as using Lightbot and Hopscotch to develop their coding skills.
