The Computing Curriculum
The National Curriculum states that pupils in Key Stage 1 should be taught 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
* Recognise common uses of information technology beyond school
* Use technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private; identify where to go for help and support when they have concerns about content or contact on the internet or other online technologies.
Computing at Wootey Infant School
At Wootey Infant School we have a range of technology for the children to use and develop their Computing skills. BenQ Smartboards, Laptops, Tablets, Beebots and programmable devices are just a few of the ways children learn to research and be creative in a digital world. We truly believe that ICT is an exciting way to enhance and support learning, taking care to balance digital experiences with real life and hands on activities.
Take a look at our Computing Overview below to see how we aim to deliver the Computing Curriculum.
E-Safety is extremely important and is taught to all year groups. We use Sid's Top Tips to help children know what to do to stay safe.
