Computing skills are taught through 3 areas;      

                 Computer Science          Information Technology           Digital Literacy

 

 Computer Science involves understanding an algorithm (a series of steps or instructions). Children will programme simple programmable toys to complete a series of steps. They will begin to understand how to debug (unpick) their programmes when they go wrong and to begin to use logical thinking in planning their work.
