The new curriculum ensures that children have the skills and knowledge to understand the part technology, particularly computers, play in in our everyday lives. Throughout Key Stage 1, pupils are taught to understand algorithms, to create and debug simple programmes, to use technology to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital data. Pupils use a range of software to enable them to access the curriculum which includes: Beebots for programming, Espresso Coding, iMovie, Daisy Dino and Photostory.
In Key Stage 2, pupils move on to design, write and debug programs. They use a range of software, which includes collecting, analysing, evaluating and presenting data in a variety of ways. In Key Stage 2 pupils use a wide variety of software and web based programmes which includes: Bookcreator, Hopscotch, Espresso Coding, Scratch, Skype, email, Python Programming, blogging and iMovie.
All pupils are taught to use the internet safely, respectfully and responsibly. They are taught how to report any concerns they may have about anything or anyone they encounter whilst using email, the web, social media and multi-player game sites.
Wherever possible, computing is taught alongside our class topics to enhance the children’s learning experience
