We have a computer suite where each class is timetabled for at least one lesson a week and also four trolleys of Windows tablets which can be used in any classroom.
Our children all learn to code with the younger children using Bee Bots to program and learning about algorithms as a set of instructions leading up to coding lessons using various online resources and websites.
The children have a log in to code.org which they can also access at home.
The children learn to create and debug more complicated programs and coding strings to help them understand concepts like variables and sequence, selection and repetition in programs. This helps to develop their reasoning skills and promote computational thinking.
Every term children learn about different aspects of esafety and how they can keep safe online.
The children all also have a log in to J2E to support learning in computing lessons.
