At Littleton, we aim to provide children with a stimulating, high-quality computing curriculum that addresses the challenges and opportunities offered by the technologically rich world we live in, preparing them for jobs of the future. Computing skills are a major factor in enabling children to be confident, creative, resilient and independent learners and it is our intention that children have every opportunity available to allow them to achieve this through regular computing lessons. ‘Computational Thinking’ is a skill each child must be taught in order to provide them with essential knowledge and skills that will enable them to participate effectively in the digital world. Children will understand how computers work, how computing systems work and how they are designed and programmed. Through regular teaching of E-safety, we strive for all our children to be responsible, respectful members of the community and empower them to use technology safely and independently.
By the time they leave Littleton, children will have gained key knowledge and skills in the three main areas of the computing curriculum: computer science (programming and understanding how digital systems work), information technology (using computer systems to store, retrieve and send information) and digital literacy (evaluating digital content and using technology safely and respectfully). The objectives within each strand support the development of learning across the key stages, ensuring a solid grounding for future learning and beyond.
