Every year we take a whole school approach to an element of the Computing Curriculum. This is in addition to the content taught as part of our broad and balanced curriculum.
During the focus period children could be creating content, writing algorithms, inventing games or investigating hardware and software. The final part of the work is for everyone in the school to share their learning, their creations and communicate with each other. This is what an Anson Web Lab looks like.
Anson Web Lab - Chrome WebLab Reinvented
In January 2013, the children at Anson Primary School began to build their own web lab. Inspired by the Google Web Lab at the Science Museum in London, the children began to create their own collaborative experiments using their own wifi and some innovative apps and websites. It was all about creating content rather than passively absorbing it. The results were amazing as every child in the school, aged 4 to 11, walked through the doors of the Lab.
