Welcome to Mr Andrews Online
A streamlined primary computing curriculum which provides complete coverage of the National Curriculum. Each project is designed in small steps to allow children to learn more but retain and know more. Each year group will teach 3 projects per year, giving teachers and pupils the chance to ensure coverage of the content occurs, build in opportunities for re-capping previous learning, developing computing knowledge, gaining creative skills and producing amazing end results to demonstrate such learning.
The Enrichment Projects in Computing, Geography, History, English and our NEW Science supplement the impact of using technology in school and give children access to skills and knowledge they will use for the rest of their lives.
Our subject knowledge organisers provide teachers, pupils and parents with key knowledge, vocabulary definition and important concepts for each project.
Our support materials include vocabulary guides, sentence stems to support all learnings, key questions for retrieval and comprehension and project quizzes to demonstrate content knowledge retention.
Our high quality resources include project made model examples (WAGOLLs) for each lesson so teachers can assess accurately and pupils can have the highest expectation of what is required. Bespoke, paper-based work is also available in certain projects to supplement evidence but ultimately to allow children to consider concepts without the use of technology.
Each lesson contains a lesson tutorial which demonstrates key elements of teaching, application/software use and fundamental concepts in the project.
Teachers have access to lesson by lesson Microsoft Power point or Google Slides presentations which include key discussion points, model examples, QR codes for quick access and appropriate external links, which are updated periodically.
Every year group has access to a personal teacher book which incorporates project roadmaps which detail previous, current and future learning so teachers understand the whole journey children will cover in computing.
Each booklet includes teacher assessment materials to support accurate assessment, ensure gaps in learning can be targeted and that children can be appropriately challenge to achieve their complete potential.
Evidencing materials and guides assist teachers to find the best mechanism of demonstrating children’s work in the most effective and efficient way.
MAO’s subject leader tools and guides are available to support leadership in schools provide the best computing provision possible. Each guide includes deep dive materials, progression grids, effective CPD guides, digital leaders implementation documents and feedback voice resources.
"Just wanted to say a big 'thank you' on behalf of the Trust today. You really captured the essence of the day and have set everyone off in the right direction. Great to see someone speaking with such knowledge and making it sound so simple .... child's play (the children's work amazed us). Keep up the fantastic and inspiring work!"

“MAO are at the forefront of the growing move towards using mobile technology as a way of engaging pupils and accelerating learning. The philosophy is based on a clear approach on how technology can be used to influence learners positively. I would recommend their input for a range of purposes. They are real teachers doing the job, not just talking about theory. I have been overwhelmed by the progress this product has enabled. Standards have accelerated beyond my expectations.”
