Computing at Killinghall

We aim to equip pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world.  The core of computing is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. 

Building on this knowledge and understanding, pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programmes, systems and a range of content.  Computing also ensures that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology, eventually being confident at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in our digital world.

Computer skills are used across the curriculum to enable children to communicate, investigate, control and select information and solve problems.  It adds richness to our curriculum enabling children to be actively involved in their own learning as well as giving great enjoyment.

Technology is a useful tool for teachers and all our classrooms are equipped with interactive whiteboards. We have ipads and hand held devices to aid learning. These are used across the curriculum from Bright Start to Year 6.

At Killinghall, we follow an engaging and innovative Computing Curriculum, taught by our Computing Coach.

Our children are gaining hands on experience in: 

  • Coding
  • Collaborating
  • Creating, organising, storing, manipulating and retrieving digital content
  • Debugging
  • Developing thier logical thinking skills
  • Recognising uses for information technology at home and outdoors
  • Understanding how networks work
  • Understanding how programs work, desiging and creating their own
  • Using search technologies effectively, how searches are sorted and how to evaluate digital content
  • Using technology safety, respectfully and responsibly

And much more.
