Computing

Our children are taught Computing skills using the Rising Stars ‘Switched On Computing’ Scheme of Work which are adapted by teachers to the needs of their individual children. The scheme is rigorous in covering the aspects of the new computing curriculum: computer science (CS), information technology (IT) and digital literacy (DL). 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 children have lots of opportunities to apply their computing skills in other areas of the Curriculum. We have a set of netbooks and each class has a bank of PC’s networked and connected to the internet, as well as interactive whiteboards in KS1, KS2 and the Foundation Stage.
