Developing the young computer programmer at Someries Infant School
During their time at Someries Infant School and Early Childhood Education Centre, children will acquire the following key knowledge, skills and understanding in computing as part of our bespoke computing curriculum.
Key stage one
Throughout key stage one, pupils are taught to understand what algorithms are, how they are implemented as programs on digital devices and that programs execute by following precise and unambiguous instructions. Pupils also learn how to create and debug simple programs and to use logical reasoning to predict the behaviour of simple programs.
As well as this, pupils learn how to use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content and how to recognise common uses of information technology beyond school.
They learn how to use technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private and where to go for help and support when they have concerns about content or contact on the internet or other online technologies.
