- Ensure children recognise that a range of technology is used in places such as homes and schools.
Encourage children to select and use technology for particular purposes
In Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, children study the National Curriculum for Computing and we aim to:
- apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation
encourage children to analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems
give children the opportunity to evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems
prepare children to be responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.
