SPRING TERM 2022 in Computing
Spring term in computing sees us bounce back into the curriculum with our Early Years pupils developing their awareness of technology in the classroom; our key stage 1 and 2 pupils will be developing their skills in Information Technology programmes such as spreadsheets, databases and creative programmes.
Safer Internet Day will be celebrated with the rest of the country in the week of the 8th February 2022. The theme this year is "All fun and games? Exploring respect and relationships online". Watch this space for lots of fun learning opportunities to explore!
IN COMPUTING AT HOMERSWOOD, we strive to prepare all of our pupils for an ever changing and developing digital world by giving them opportunities to practise the skills and characteristics needed to become masters of technology. Our Homerswood Values and Golden Threads are intertwined within our Computing Curriculum of ‘digital literacy’, ‘computer science’ and ‘information technology’ where knowledge and skills are modelled and taught. Pupils have a natural curiosity for technology that is nurtured at Homerswood, along with resilience, problem-solving and opportunities to collaborate with others. It is imperative that our pupils understand the positive and negative effects that using technology has on individuals, local communities, national communities and the wider world and how they can play their part in this.
