Computing Information

Computing at The Marlborough

We hope this webpage will be a platform for the childrens' Computing work and photographs of what classes have been doing in Computing this year.   Since the introduction of the new curriclum, we have been following the Chris Quigley Scheme of Work for Computing.  This means our Computing work is broken down into 5 different units:

  • To Code (Coding using various computer programming software eg. Roamers, Scratch, Kodu, Espresso Coding, PurpleMash).
  • To Connect (blogs, emails, online media)
  • To Communicate (posters and presentations using Word, Publisher, Powerpoint, Glogster)
  • To Collect (data entry and collection)
  • E-Safety

 

To Communicate

Log onto Glogster using your child's Username and Password to see what online posters they have been creating.  You can also browse glogpedia to look at many other glogs children from around the world have created.

Safer Internet Day 2015

On Tuesday 10th 2015, we  had our 4th Internet Safety Day.  We had a competition - The Best Decorated Classroom Door.   Classes had to decorate their door to reflect the key messages of this year's theme 'Let's Create a Better Internet Together'.  Children also decorated flags and these were placed in the entrance hall.  We also had a Coding Quiz.  We used Google Search to find out the answers to tricky questions.  We then used the numerical answers to guide us around the playground to help us pinpoint the hidden treasure.   Have a look at our photo gallery to find out what we got up to during this year's Internet Safety Day.
