Computing Curriculum

 

At Lingey House Primary School children are taught computing from Reception through to Year 6. Pupils have the opportunity to use ICT within the class across a range of subjects. Children have access to PC's, iPads and LearnPads. Pupils are also taught about how to keep themselves safe online.

 

The new curriculum puts a clearer emphasis on three areas of learning:

  • Computer Science - how computers work and how to write algorithms; solve problems to eventually create a computer program.

  • Information Technology - how data is represented and managed on computers.

  • Digital Literacy - how to understand digital information and interact with it safely and appropriately.

     

 

Aims

 

The national curriculum for computing aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation.

  • can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems.

  • can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems.

  • are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.
