Welcome to Mr Hall’s Computing Blog

As you may be aware, I have a new role in school this year. I will be teaching computing throughout the whole school and developing Lowerplace as a centre for excellence for computing in primary schools. I am hugely excited about the year ahead. i can’t wait to meet lots of new children and get re-aquainted with those I have already taught in the past few years.

This is an exciting time for computing. We have a a fabulous bank of resources at Lowerplace which offers children the opportunity to experience a huge range of computing activities. We are also introducing the new Computing curriculum this year which focuses much more on how we can use and adapt technology to our advantage. By the end of the year all children will have some experience of programming and some will have developed their own games.

I will be using this blog to showcase the children’s achievements and to post my thoughts on the new curriculum and the challenges ahead. I will also offer advice and guidance on how to use technology safely. Exciting times!
