IT is now part of many aspects of our daily lives. We aim to provide children with opportunities to develop their confidence, skills and knowledge of IT by using computers, programmable robots, recording equipment, calculators and cameras.
The nature of IT means that it is best used in all curriculum areas supporting and enriching the children’s learning experiences.
A variety of software programmes are used to stimulate and support class work throughout the school. These include developing language and mathematical skills, word processing, logical thinking and reasoning, programming a screen and floor turtle, handling data, creating music and pictures and problem solving.
Each class visits the computer suite and also has access to the Internet through the controlled website browsing system.
Many lessons are also delivered using the interactive whiteboards at the school.
