The St Lawrence Computing curriculum helps pupils develop into computational thinking problem solvers through programming and develop their use of technology in a range of ways. The core of computing is computing science and we use real-life examples, Bee-Bots, Scratch Jr on iPads and Scratch programming on laptops to understand abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation. Links are made with other curriculum areas to support and share learning.
We have a Twitter account that the pupils are encouraged to contribute ideas about their learning. Whilst encouraging children to be digitally literate, we address elements of online safety using resources from the Think U Know website - thinkuknow.co.uk – and how to use the internet safely, responsibly and respectfully.
