The Computing Curriculum has 3 strands which are covered throughout the year. These are:
At The Green Infant Schol children use ICT to support and enhance their learning in all curriculum areas. They have a chance to use and develop skills using a variety of ICT equipment.
In Key Stage 1 children will be learning what algorithms are, which will not always involve computers. When explained as 'a set of instructions' teachers may illustrate the idea using recipes, or by breaking down the steps of children’s morning routines. Children will be creating and debugging simple programs of their own, developing logical reasoning skills and taking their first steps in using devices to 'create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content'. They will also be developing their digital creativity skills by creating computer art, taking and editing digital images and creating simple animation.
In addition children will learn about the importance of Online-Safety and life skills which will ensure they use computers in a safe and appropriate manner.
