Our Curriculum


TNHP - Classroom Activities - 2023 (26)

At Templenewsam Halton Primary School, we want children to become masters of technology and embrace the changes in the 21st Century. 

Technology is everywhere and will play an important part in our children’s lives.  We want to model and educate our children on how to use technology positively, responsibly and safely; our computing curriculum of computer science, information technology and digital literacy enable our children to do this and become creators.

Long Term Planning

Computing is an essential resource to support learning and teaching and it plays an important role in the everyday lives of young people and adults. Online safety at Templenewsam Halton Primary School is an important part of our computing curriculum. We have a responsibility to keep children safe and to know how to use technology responsibly and confidently. Consequently, we teach online safety on dedicated days through the year in addition to weekly timetabled computing times.

Below are some links for online safety help and support.

Squid Game

Netflix’s recent Squid Game is become one of the streaming service’s most successful show of all time, with huge numbers of viewers taking to social media to discuss each new episode. The South Korean thriller is rated 15 by the BBFC and features some scenes of violence following a group of adults who compete to win innocent-looking playground games, but with consequences if they do not succeed at the tasks.

Due to its success, Squid Game is beginning to spread across various online platforms. There has been different content already created, ranging from memes to apps, that convey the content of the show, so it is important for us all to understand the basis of Squid Game and the potential risks to young people who might be exposed to it.

Below is a link from National Online Safety which includes detailed information about what Squid Game is, why it may pose a risk to children and where to seek help. In addition, your class teacher will always be happy to help.
