Miss Corner is our COMPUTING Lead
There are three main strands of the Computing curriculum: information technology, digital literacy and computer science.
Information technology is about the use of computers for functional purposes, such as collecting and presenting information, or using search technology.
Digital literacy is about the safe and responsible use of technology, including recognising its advantages for collaboration or communication.
Computer science introduces children of all ages to understanding how computers and networks work. It will also give all children the opportunity to learn basic computer programming, from simple floor robots in Reception, Years 1 and 2, right up to creating on-screen computer games and programmes by Year 6.
At Wrenthorpe, the computing curriculum also includes regular teaching of e-safety to ensure that children feel confident when using computers and the Internet, and know what to do if they come across something either inappropriate or uncomfortable.
