The Computing Curriculum at Bourn aims to support children in becoming digitally literate. Lessons are interactive and provide children with exposure to both plugged and unplugged activities.
Across the course of the year all children cover the same unit pathways at the same time of year:
- Keyboard skills
- Online Safety
- Algorithms and Sequencing
- Safe Searching and Researching
- Digital Media
These units are designed to develop the children’s skill sets as they progress through our year groups.
Online safety is very important to us at Bourn and we have therefore designed our curriculum to ensure children learn about online safety in general as well as a more in-depth half-term unit about how to search and research online, safely.
Each year group also learns digital art skills, in order that a balance of computing skills and knowledge is taught.
