Computing at Cookridge Holy Trinity

At Cookridge Holy Trinity Primary school we value the importance of Computing as an important life skill and it is a part of everyday life for us at Holy Trinity. We are fortunate to have 30 children laptops, iPads, Chromebooks, Beebots, Probots and also Virtual Reality (VR) Headsets which allow us to learn vital IT skills in our Computing lessons as well as enhancing our learning in other curriculum areas.

Computing is changing the lives of everyone. Through teaching Computing we equip children to participate in a rapidly-changing world where work and leisure activities are increasingly transformed by technology. We enable them to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information, whilst teaching the children how to keep safe online.

We also focus on developing the skills necessary for children to be able to use information in a discriminating and effective way. IT skills are a major factor in enabling children to be confident, creative and independent learners. We teach Computing using the Chris Quigley Essentials scheme of learning.

The aims of Computing at Cookridge Holy Trinity:

  • Competence in coding for a variety of practical and inventive purposes, including the application of ideas within other subjects.
  • The ability to connect with others safely and respectfully, understanding the need to act within the law and with moral and ethical integrity.
  • An understanding of the connected nature of devices.
  • The ability to communicate ideas well by using applications and devices throughout the curriculum.
  • The ability to connect, organise and manipulate data effectively.

Safer Internet Day 2021

In school we promote E-Safety everyday but we have a focus on Safer Internet Day. This year activities have been set at home and for those who are in school. Here are some of the work across some of our year groups:

Year 1

Year 1 looked at the story of Smartie the Penguin.

Year 2

Year 2 saw the story of Detective Digiduck and solved the problems posed to him.

A lovely comment from a parent about the Digiduck book they read: ‘We enjoyed reading the Digiduck book online and watching the online safety videos – we then had a lengthy conversation regarding internet awareness and safety. Christian likes to play online and he only speaks to one person who is also a class mate therefore a safe connection.’

Year 3

Year 3 watched the ‘Lee & Kim’ video and made our own personal chain of trusted adults who we can talk to if ever we feel sad or worried about anything that’s happened on the internet.

Year 4

Year 4 explored different age limits for social media apps. They thought about how they can keep themselves safe using: ‘Zip it, Block it, Flag it’. They created their own set of rules to keep them safe.

Year 5


Year 6

Year 6 designed their own E-Safety Pixel Art on Excel. They needed to explain how to keep E-Safe with a particular focus on social media and mental health.
