All the teaching staff at Meon Junior School are working with Meon Infant and Moorings Way Infant School colleagues to identify how our curriculum will meet the needs of our children across the three schools.
We believe it is important to plan the learning journey of the children from Year R to Year 6. Even though we are a Junior School, this does not stop us using what the children have already learnt before they leave Infant School. This is vitally important. As three schools, we have worked together to produce a joint intention of what we want the children to learn. Our joint subject teams produced the following statements in September 2019:
Learning in Computing
By the end of year 2, children will confidently work on digital devices to able to write and test simple programmes. They will have a developing knowledge of how technology is used in our school and the world around them. Pupils will have developing understanding of how to use technology safely and know they must speak to an adult if something does not feel right. This will help them keep safe and find their place in the world.
By the end of year 6, pupils will have experienced a balance curriculum covering all aspects of computing including; digital literacy skills, information technology, computer science and E safety. They will have a working knowledge of the role technology plays in their lives and in society today. Pupils will become Computational Thinkers and are able to participate effectively and safely in this digital world. They will be ready for their next stage in computing education to enable them to be successful learner for the future workplace. They will be ready to use technology to find their place in our ever changing world.

Progression in Computing
As the children move through Meon Junior they build on skills and subject knowledge term after term, year after year, whilst also using Computational Thinking to solve problems like computer scientist
The Knowledge Organisers in Computing show the key skills, vocabulary and particular program that the children will be learning about throughout the term.
