Computing at Our Lady's
At Our Lady's we use a wide range of technology to ensure our children develop computing skills that they can use throughout their lives. Our approach to computing can enable our children to be creative using many different applications in different areas of the whole school curriculum.
Our computing curriculum is bespoke. Created for our children and our school to ensure every learner is challenged and inspired by technology.
The computing curriculum consists of 3 different areas:
- Computer Science (including programming and coding)
- Digital Literacy and Online Technologies (DLOT)
- Information and Communication Technology (presenting information through multi-media and data handling)
We also cover in E-safety throughout our units and in depth at the beginning of each year.
The study of the hardware, software, networking and processes that give life to a machine to enable it to perform complicated tasks and actions such as coding a Maths quiz and a platform game.
Learning to use technology appropriately and responsibly to survive and thrive in the digital world. It is at the forefront of all lessons and is embedded through class assemblies and e-safety days throughout the year.
Select, use and combine a variety of software (including internet services) on a range of digital devices to design and create content that accomplish given goals, including collecting, analysing, evaluating and presenting data and information.
At Our Lady's we are fortunate enough to have access to Chrome books, iPads and digital cameras to support our learning in all of these curriculum areas.
