At school, we will ensure that a high-quality computing education equips the children to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. The core of computing is computer science, in which children will be taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Building on this knowledge and understanding, children will be equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content.
Computing will also ensure that children become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through information and communication technology.
We provide ample opportunity for creative, collaborative project work and the children enjoy sharing their learning through photo stories, posters, videos or animation. We often share our learning across the school and with parents during themed weeks or Fridays sharing assemblies. In Term 6 each class puts together a Transition project about their class which are showcased in an end of year Assembly.
Through all of our learning we always make sure children are aware of E-saftey issues. Each class has their own set of rules displayed and these are discussed and added to throughout the year. We have an E- safety day every February which highlights all safety issues.
