Hoylandswaine's Subject Stories

Subject stories are unique to Hoylandswaine and are central to our broad, balanced and inclusive curriculum offer.  They give our vision for the subject area throughout school. We have a bespoke subject story for each area of the curriculum, which has been written by the subject leader based on the national curriculum and what it looks like in our school. A subject story sets out our intent in that subject and what we as a school aim to offer every child to ensure that they succeed. They share how the subject is delivered and what you would expect to see in a typical lesson, with the resources that we have available. 

Hoylandswaine Primary School Knowledge Webs for Computing 2021/22

This term each class will be focussing on the following (End points are the knowledge that children need to secure and 'stick' as they progress through the computing curriculum):

What is Coding?

Code is the language used to instruct computers. Facebook, your mobile apps and your browser are all made with code – it’s simply computer programming to you and me! And there are a range of different programming languages you can use – HTML, for example, is the computer code used to create web pages.
