Through the new programme of computer systems work, children can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including logic, algorithms and data representation. They can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems. Our children will become responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.
Every lesson in computing should be a safe experience for our children. To recognise this there was a global celebration on Tuesday 6th February 2018. During this week children worked on sharing how they can keep themselves safe when on the World Wide Web. They took part in a variety of activities which included; watching age appropriate videos provided by SID and CEOP, role playing situations and designing posters to remind children how to keep safe online.
Here are some images of our Year 6 children enjoying working with the CLC on designing their own game in Scratch Junior.
