Computing

Computers are now part of everyday life. For most of us, technology is essential to our lives, at home and at work. ‘Computational thinking’ is a skill children must be taught if they are to be ready for the workplace and able to participate effectively in this digital world.

 

The national curriculum for computing has been developed to equip young people in England with the foundational skills, knowledge and understanding of computing they will need for the rest of their lives. E-Safety has become compulsory in the new curriculum ensuring that all pupils are taught how to respect themselves and others in the digital world. This has been something that Corsham Regis has had as standard practise for some years now.

 

Through the programme of study for computing, they will learn how computers and computer systems work; they will design and build programs; develop their ideas using technology and create a range of content. We aim to teach pupils how to use the computer hardware and software confidently and access a range of media to support their learning in other areas of the curriculum.

 

This is a really exciting time to be a pupil at primary school. The opportunities that advances in technology will bring to our pupils as they grow up are hard to imagine. The curiosity, creativity and courage that are nurtured in them now should endure as they move on through education and into adult life.
