Computing


 

At Stoneyholme we have made a significant investment in ICT equipment to enable that every child in KS1 and KS2 at our school has access to their own iPad to enhance learning in and outside the classroom. Our EYFS children have access to a bank of iPads to develop information technology skills, children also have access to technologies through the use of the greenscreen studio and radio station.

 

Our aim is to provide an opportunity to every student in school to be confident in using technology which could be computers, laptops, iPads and radio station. 

 

The implementation of iPads into classrooms has allowed the childrens creativity to be unlocked and flourish.

 

 

The children consider the following concept questions throughout learning in Digital Literacy.

 

What does it mean to be a citizen

Does equality always mean treating everybody the same?

Is power always a positive thing?

Does change always make things better?

Is being part of a community the same for everyone?

 

Computer science at Stoneyholme is taught from EYFS through to year 6, with a continued development of their skills and knowledge of algorithms, sequencing and repetition. In KS1 using robots (beebots) and block coding applications, we apply the concepts of algorithms, sequencing, selection in code whilst understanding that bugs exist in code and developing debugging skills. In KS2 we begin to explore programming languages including Java and Swift and to enhance their block coding skills.
