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.
