Computing

At St Elizabeth’s, the Computing Curriculum is an important and exciting part of our children’s education.  Our aim is to ensure that each child acquires the knowledge relevant to adult life in a fast changing technological world. Our ICT suite enables us to teach valuable computing skills to whole class groups, including e-mail and safe access to the internet.  In addition all children have access to computers and tablets in their classrooms. This enables ICT to be embedded across all areas of the curriculum. 

All classrooms have an interactive whiteboard which is used in every teaching area to engage and motivate pupils and encourage the further development of computing skills.

Throughout both Key Stages, children develop a wide variety of ICT capabilities including word processing, data handling, control technology, information retrieval and games to reinforce concepts from other curriculum areas. We encourage investigations and the understanding of direction, shape and angle through the use of programmable devices such as Beebot and the Turtle. Children also learn to write their own programs and games, using ‘Scratch’.

E-Safety is given high priority at St Elizabeth’s.  Our children are taught how to become safe and confident when online.  We also hold regular evening events to inform parents how to keep their children safe when using the internet.
