Curriculum - Computing
Our computing curriculum is made up of three main elements: computer science, information technology and digital literacy.
Our curriculum for computing has been developed so that the children will learn how computers and computer systems work; they will design and build programs, develop their ideas using technology and create a range of content. The role of programming in computer science is to provide motivation and a context within which ideas are brought to life.
The information technology element deals with applying computer systems to solve real world problems such as finding things out, presenting and sharing information and reviewing, modifying and evaluating work. We aim for the children to confidently and independently use and apply information technology skills to support and extend their learning. We develop a culture where the use of IT becomes second nature to our pupils, thus ensuring they are ready and able to embrace the technological advances of the future.
Digital literacy focuses on helping children to evaluate the efficiency and appropriateness of digital content. It teaches children to use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly; recognising acceptable/unacceptable behaviour and identifies a range of ways to report concerns about content and contact.
Our Collaborative Classroom is a unique 21st Century learning Environment for our children.
