Computing

 

'Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.' Steve Jobs

In computing pupils will have the opportunity to:

  • Understand what algorithms are, how they are implemented as programs on digital devices, and that programs execute by following precise and unambiguous instructions
  • Create and debug simple programs
  • Use logical reasoning to predict the behaviour of simple programs
  • Use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content
  • Recognise common uses of information technology beyond school
  • Use technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private; identify where to go for help and support when they have concerns about content or contact on the internet or other online technologies

Pupils will be able to develop their skills as computer programmers by:

  • Using the internet safely
  • Understanding the different uses of technology
  • Giving instructions to make things happen
  • Being able to predict simple patterns
  • Being able to solve simple problems
  • Being able to enter, load and save information
  • Using the internet to find information
