Year 1 - In computing, children will have access to a range of electronic equipment daily. Class 1 have cameras, voice recorders and computers which children access regularly. We will also focus on the following areas in directed areas of study: Music and Sound, Programming and Coding, Data, Multimedia, Digital Imagery .
Year 2 - In Year 2 children will learn a range of skills linked to Computer Science and Digital Literacy. These skills will include different software to create and manipulate text, graphics and sound, developing basic computer programming skills, using the internet to find and share information and linking Computing to science by using it to present and understand data. E-safety is also taught throughout the year.
Year 3 - In Class 3 children use computing in almost all subject areas. This may include using the internet, a piece of software, digital camera or data logger. Areas covered include: Programming and Coding, Digital Exploration, Communicating and Collaborating, Digital Imagery, Music and Sound. Where possible these areas are linked to topic areas. Internet safety plays a very prominent role in all computing lessons.
Year 4 - During computing year 4 will have the opportunity to learn about programming and coding, use logical reasoning to explain how some simple algorithms work and use and combine a variety of software, including collecting, analysing, evaluating and presenting data and information. A lesson once a term covers the importance of e-safety.
Year 5 - In Computing, Year 5 learn a range of skills across the following areas: combining music and sound, digital imagery, data, programming and digital Literacy – communicating / collaborating. They continue to learn about e-safety.
Year 6 - Children will develop their skills in Computer Science and Digital Literacy including: Data Handling, Communicating and Collaborating, Programming and Coding, Music and Sound and Digital Exploration, using a variety of different software. E Safety continues to be an area of increasing importance and the children will explore how to use technology safely and responsibly.
E-safety - E-safety is considered to be of the utmost importance at Waddesdon Village Primary School. Assemblies on e-safety take place termly, as well as CEOP lessons, specific to E-safety issues. E-safety is also taught where relevant throughout all the Computing units.
