At Waverton Primary School we believe a high-quality computing education equips our pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Computing has deep links with mathematics, science, and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. The core of computing is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming.
The needs of the Computing Curriculum are easily met through our use of iPad. Teachers at Waverton have had the opportunity to do this through the use of apps such as Alex, Bee-Bot, Hopscotch, Kodable, Tynker, Scratch Jnr, Sketch Nation Game Wizard and Pixel Floor Press.
Waverton pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content. Computing also ensures that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.
We use a multi-platform approach to computing to develop safe, responsible and competent learners; who are creative and logical; as they navigate, investigate and contribute to the world around them. iPad is used across the whole school to address key areas of the Computing Curriculum.
