We plan for and allow our children to develop their computing skills through a range of engaging opportunities. It is essential for the children to understand and value the importance of staying safe when using technology and we do this through both direct and cross curricular teaching. We use a range of equipment and programmes to bring computing and technology to life in an age appropriate way.
In Year R the children explore a range of equipment including remote control cars, microphones and cameras which they are encouraged to use in all areas of their learning.
Year 1 children particularly enjoy the use of green screening programmes to showcase their learning about our solar system in a creative way.
The children in Year 2 are given the opportunity to work in teams to create an animation using stop motion software. The children have ownership of the entire project from making the set to storing and retrieving their clips for later.
