Computing at Bolton-By-Bowland Primary School
Through teaching computing we equip our children to participate in a rapidly changing world where work and leisure activities are increasingly transformed by technology.
Our intention is to enable children to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information by the time they leave our school.
The new curriculum puts a clearer emphasis on three areas of learning:
Computer science – how computers work and how to write algorithms and solve problems to eventually create a computer program.
Information technology – how data is represented and managed on computers.
Digital literacy – how to understand digital information and interact with it safely and appropriately.
We want children to be critical thinkers and to develop creativity and resilience through the computing curriculum. Pupils have the opportunity to use ICT within the class across a range of subjects. Children have access to both laptops and iPads.
