Reception

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) does not have a separate computing curriculum. However, computing can be interwoven into the seven areas of learning. 

 

Communication and Language

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

Physical Development

Literacy

Mathematics

Understanding the World

Expressive Arts and Design

 

Some examples of how computing is used in the Early Years at Church Lench are:

 

Communication and Language

Children listen to online stories and help create stories. They follow simple instructions to use technology such as ipads, laptops and beebots. Discussions are encouraged throughout any technology use.

 

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

Children are encouraged to become confident using new technology and having a go at different activities set for them.

 

Physical Development

Using technology can help with motor control. Using a mouse and learning to manipulate things on screen such as painting a picture are examples of this.

 

Literacy

Children use online pictures and resources to tell stories and discuss what they see.

 

Mathematics

Maths games are used to help children's understanding of mathematics both to teach new concepts and also to reinforce prior learning.

 

Understanding the World

Children learn about and discuss different technology that is used around the home and school and in the wider world. They use technology to compare things around them.

 

Expressive Arts and Design

The children use technology to help listen to and create music.

 

This list is not exhaustible and there are other opportunities for the children to use Purple Mash and other technology throughout the curriculum.
