The Computing curriculum at Denbigh aims to equip our children with a foundation of skills, knowledge and understanding of computing that they will need for the rest of their lives. Through a variety of learning experiences from both Teachers and experts from the Computing field, they learn how computers and computer systems work, they design and build programs and machines, develop their ideas using technology and create a range of content. Through this the children develop a knowledge of computing language and how this impacts on Society equipping them with the tools to be good digital citizens.
More from our Computing unit in Dolphin class. This afternoon, we had to program our EV3 robots to move through mazes and around objects, following a set of specific instructions. Some of the challenges were very tricky! #dcpsdolphin #dcpscomputing #dcpscore #dcpsict ... See MoreSee Less
Year 5 Whales completed the second part of thier EV3 unit today, they had to programme the robots to move around a maze, move objects and make sure they stayed inside the lines! #dcpswhale #dcpscomputing #dcpsictforlearning ... See MoreSee Less
Year 5 Dolphins have been computing geniuses this afternoon! We have been working with the EV3 robots to complete a set of missions using our coding skills. We had to work as a team to fix our code by using our debugging skills when things didn’t go quite to plan. We can’t wait to complete our next set of missions later on this week. #dcpsdolphin #dcpscomputing #dcpscore #dcpsict ... See MoreSee Less
Year 5 Whales have had a great afternoon working on their commuting topic, programming EV3 robots. We had to write algorithms for the robots to follow, debug any problems we encountered and then complete challenges that were set. We are ready for day 2! #dcpswhale #dcpscomputing #dcpsict4learning #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less
Earlier this week, Lion class were combing their knowledge of Music, Computing, DT and Science to create a Christmas object that would entertain others. First, we used our DT knowledge to create a decorative unit for the equipment. Then, we used our coding skills and ability to read music to create some Christmas songs using Microbits. Can you guess our tune?

Year 6 Tigers have had a great day working alongside Mr Brown to create their own singing Christmas decorations. This morning, they worked to a brief to design and create their prototypes before moving onto the computing task. They used Microbits to bring their Christmas decoration to life by coding them to display messages and play a Christmas tune. They were able to read musical notation to code their Microbits to play the correct notes. What a great day! Miss Stephenson #dcpsmusic #DCPStiger #dcpsdt #dcpscomputing #dcpsict ... See MoreSee Less
Year 6 Lions have kicked off December with a festive Computing and D&T project. Our brief is to create a Christmas item that will create festive cheer and joy. We are designing our prototype this morning and coding it this afternoon. The atmosphere is electric! #dcpslion #dcpscomputing #dcpsSTEM #dcpsmusic #dcpsbritishvalues ... See MoreSee Less
