Computing

Computing

 

Computing begins in our EYFS where children have daily opportunities to access computers and other electronically controlled devices such as remote control cars, CD players, BeeBots and recordable microphones. From Years 1-6 children are taught discrete computing lessons on a weekly basis. During these sessions key skills including touch typing, emailing, Microsoft Office and Coding are taught. In addition to this, children learn about computer networks, search engines and blogging.

 

For further information on how our Early Years unit provides the foundations for Computing please follow this link to the EYFS page:
