Computing

Computing at St George’s

At St George’s we have a range of technological equipment available for use; every class has an interactive board linked to a laptop and there is a bank of laptops and iPads. These are available for classes to use, as and when appropriate, for all areas of the curriculum. We also have cameras and digital recording equipment to enhance and record learning.



In Foundation Stage, the children learn about push button toys; they learn to use iPads and computers and we talk about using computers safely and accessing appropriate websites.



In Key Stage 1, the children begin to understand: how to write and debug programs; how to program toys; how to record events digitally and how to stay safe online and using appropriate websites.


In Key Stage 2, the children use: Microbits to learn how to code; Scratch to write programs and create animations and Windows Movie Maker to edit and create videos. They also explore e-safety in depth, including being ‘share aware’ and how to stay safe on social media.


We also have Code Club, which runs on a Thursday evening for KS2 children.
