Transition Pack with Dot Com Digital

May 24, 2022

Transition is both an exciting and challenging time for pupils. As Year 6 children enter their last half term of Primary education it is a term that is usually full of a range of activities and preparation for Secondary School. During this time, schools often take part in a range of Junior Citizen or Crucial Crew types of lessons, which look to give children the skills to deal with a wide range of situations and enables them to make a valued contribution to their local community through good citizenship.

We have put together a transition pack using resources from Dot Com Digital that teachers can use over the latter half of the summer term to support children with their PHSE and Junior Citizenship visits.

Purple Mash and Ofsted's High Quality Computing Curriculum: Day 1

May 24, 2022

On 16th May, Ofsted published their research review into the computing curriculum, to ‘identify factors that can contribute to high-quality school computing curriculums, assessment, pedagogy and systems. We’ve taken a close look at the report and identified how Purple Mash meets each of those factors, and throughout this week we're posting a series of blog posts outlining exactly how it does this. Each daily blog will cover 2-3 of the factors in depth, looking at what the report says and highlighting where Purple Mash supports them.

Today, we start by looking at teacher technical and pedagogical content knowledge of computing, as well as the curriculum structure: called the pillars of progression within this report.
