Computing

 

Computing lessons cover through each year four strands: Computer Science; Understanding technology; Digital Literacy; and E safety. During their time in school children are taught to design, write and debug programs; to use sequence, selection and repetition; and work with variables. They are taught to use logical reasoning to understand and explain how algorithms work. Children are also taught to understand computers and computer networks, and to use computers, including the internet, to develop their research, communication and presentation skills. They learn that information needs to be accurate and relevant and are taught how to check the quality of information, learning how to filter good information from bad, and how to present information and data in a way that suits the needs of their audience. They learn how to be safe, respectful and responsible both with friends and the wider online community. Children also explore and compare the different ways Computing is used in and out of school

We have a fully equipped Computing Suite which is used for teaching computing skills as well as other subjects. In addition we make good use of other technology, especially our iPads and interactive whiteboards, to enhance teaching and learning across the curriculum.

There is also the opportunities for pupils to go beyond the curriculum with our after school ICT Clubs and Code Club.
