At Avonwood, we teach the Computing curriculum through software called Purple Mash which supports our teaching of the progression of skills from Foundation through to Year 6. Children can gain access to Purple Mash both at school and home, enabling children to continue their learning when they are not in the classroom. It is an award winning scheme of work that enables students to enhance their computing knowledge through building on key concepts each year.
Purple Mash entitles children to develop their understanding of coding, spreadsheets, databases, networks, the internet, online safety and touch typing.
Intertwined with the Purple Mash software, we also teach online safety through the Education for a Connected World Framework which introduces the children to specific online safety topics such as self-image and identity, online relationships and privacy and security.
