Children have a range of opportunities to develop their digital literacy and, computational thinking and creativity.
We do this by developing their skills in:
Computer Science -where pupils are taught about how digital systems work, the principles of computation and how to put this into practice through programming. We do this using programs such as Scratch
Information Technology, multimedia and word processing-using programs such as Microsoft Office (Word, Publisher, PowerPoint etc.) and devices such as laptops and iPads to develop everyday skills.
Digital media -using computing software and hardware to create videos, music, art etc.
Data management -using programs such as Microsoft Excel to create spreadsheets, tables and graphs.
Online safety -making sure that the children develop their understanding of the digital world and what they need to do to be safe. We do this both in individual classes and as a whole school
