The national curriculum for computing has four main aims to ensure that pupils:
- Can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation.
- Can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems.
- Can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems.
- Are responsible, competent , confident and creative users of information and communication technology.
At Lake View we have an interactive board/CleverTouch in every classroom, a computer suite, a set of laptops and iPads. We teach computing discretely and through other subjects. Children are taught about the importance of being safe whilst online and parents are encouraged to talk to their children about internet safety.
Teachers use their class web page to engage with parents and pupils.
We have recently set up a Twitter account, please follow us at lakeview_ps.
Foundation Stage also communicate to parents through the online learning journey Tapestry. KS1 and KS2 communicate through their class reward system DoJo.
At Lake View we understand the importance of teaching your child these key computing skills, they are the skills that our modern work force will need in 20 years time...
