Computing at FCVS
Technology is changing the lives of everyone and rapidly changing the way we work, communicate and learn.
We aim to teach computing to equip children with the skills to access this way of working as well as becoming more confident and creative independent learners.
We intend for children to find, explore, analyse and present information and develop an understanding of how to use information in an effective way so they leave primary school computer literate.
We follow the 3 strands of the National Curriculum:
1. Computer Science- understand how to write and debug (fix) algorithms in coding software. To follow instructions to write code. To understand how to search for information.
2. Information Technology- understand that technology is everywhere and how it can be used/links to our everyday lives. This includes using basic software such as word processing, spreadsheets and presentation of information.
3. Digital Literacy- understand how to use technology safely and responsibly.
