Computing

In key stage 1 pupils explore ICT and learn to use it confidently and with purpose to achieve specific outcomes. They start to use ICT to develop their ideas and record their creative work. They become familiar with hardware and software.

During key stage 2 pupils use a wider range of ICT tools and information sources to support their work in other subjects. They develop their research skills and decide what information is appropriate for their work. They begin to question the plausibility and quality of information. They learn how to amend their work and present it in a way that suits its audience.

Google Expeditions comes to Norwood
Ever wanted to climb Mt Everest? How about a trip down the Amazon River or a scuba dive in the Great Barrier Reef? On Wednesday 2ndNovember that is exactly what all of the KS2 classes did, when they took part in the Google Expeditions Pioneer Program.

Arriving with 60 Google Cardboard headsets, 60 mobile phones and 2 tablets, a Google Expedition associate trained the KS2 teachers so that they could take each class on a fully immersive virtual expedition around the globe and beyond (Year 5 loved their trip to the Moon). Even Mrs Bennet and Mr Dumbell couldn’t resist joining in the fun.

The children absolutely loved the experience as it brought the places they are studying to life. When the Headsets first turned on, the collective gasp was wonderful to hear, as was their amazed mumblings as they surveyed their virtual surroundings. As Leon from Year 3 said, ‘I loved it. It’s like we were really there.’’

Google Expeditions is a free app that can be downloaded from the Google Play store and Google Cardboard viewers can be purchased on-line for around £15.00.
