Computing at The Minster

Computing is taught both as a separate subject and through other areas of the curriculum.

The Minster Junior School has recently implemented Purple Mash as a tool to teach computing. Purple Mash is an educational, creative and inspiring website for children. It is packed with games and resources for subjects across the curriculum, delivering an engaging experience for pupils.

We are using the Purple Mash schemes of work across our year groups with particular focus to deliver all the coding elements of the computing curriculum. Purple Mash provides a range of tools to develop computing knowledge and promote safety online. 2Code provides support and progression for our pupils from starter tasks to advances coding skills. There are resources for all ages and abilities. All children have been given their own personal login so that they can not only complete tasks at school but at home as well.

In each classroom there are desktops, laptops and iPads for every year group. Every class has time-tabled lessons for computing.

Information on e-safety can be found here.
