Through the new programme of computer systems work, children can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including logic, algorithms and data representation. They can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems. Our children will become responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.
Attitudes and skills
In an ever changing subject we seek to encourage children to develop the following skills:
- Computing enquiry
- Transferrable skills
The CLC worked with year 6 to create their own game. The children had the chance to play a game to begin with before designing their own. The children used the programme Tynker and worked on algorithms, instructional work and coding in order to make the game. The children enjoyed playing their own games and then playing their partners too. Some children have continued to make their own games using Tynker at home.
