Computing

Computing (the new name for ICT) is such an important life skill. Computers are now part of everyday life and for most of us, is essential to our lives at home and at work. At Alwoodley Primary, we are fortunate enough to have our own Computing suite with desktops, iPads, HP Tablets, Applemacs, Macbooks, Learnpads and HP Compaq laptops which allows us to learn vital IT skills in our Computing lessons as well as enhancing our learning in other curriculum areas.

 

 

The aims of the new Computing Curriculum is to equip the future generations with the necessary skills for adult life and employment within the ever-changing technological environment we live in. Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is vital in achieving this, therefore here at Alwoodley Primary, we have ensured our Computing curriculum provides opportunities where children:

  • understand the ethical guidelines of using the internet safely,  valuing their own identity
  •  appreciate and respect advances in technology to enable them to reflect on experiences when learning about the world around them
  •  actively support each other in challenging problem solving situations where design, programming and construction is essential

 

This year, we are having a huge push on Coding and Programming where we are learning what algorithms are, how to 'debug'/solve problems we may come across and even write our own programs. 

 

Have a look below to see what we have been getting up to throughout the year groups.
