During Key Stage 1 pupils explore computing and learn to use it confidently and with purpose to achieve specific outcomes. They start to use computing to develop their ideas and record their creative work. They are introduced to algorithms and work with various tools such as beebots and code-a-pillars to explore, create and debug programming. They become familiar with hardware and software to create, change, store and retrieve digital content. Children are constantly exploring how to stay safe online, and use technology respectfully.
During Key Stage 2 pupils develop their digital competency. They use a wider range of computing tools and information sources in a cross-curricular way to reflect the importance computing skills have in modern society. They design, write and debug their own programmes using a range of resources such as purple mash and discovery coding. They learn the skills needed to explore the web safely and efficiently.
