Computing

We believe that Computing is an essential part of the curriculum; a subject that not only stands alone but is woven into all other subjects and should be an integral part of all learning. Computing, in general, is a significant part of everyone’s daily life and children should be at the forefront of new technology, with a thirst for learning new skills. Computing within our school therefore provides a wealth of learning opportunities and transferrable skills explicitly within the Computing lesson and helps children to understand how the world around them works.

 

Key stage 1

By the end of Key Stage 1 children should be able to:

·         Understand what algorithms are; how they are implemented as programs on digital devices; and that programs execute by following precise and unambiguous instructions.

·         Create and debug simple programs.

·         Use logical reasoning to predict the behaviour of simple programs.

·         Use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content.

·         Use technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private; know where to go for help and support when they have concerns about material on the internet.

·         Recognise common uses of information technology beyond school.
