Computing at Woolpit

At Woolpit, Computing is an important part of the curriculum and is taught throughout the school. We use the locally developed Keychain Computing scheme of work, which ensures that all aspects of the curriculum are covered. Computing lessons at Woolpit offer the children opportunities to use and develop understanding of different technology and software. They learn important skills that develop computer literacy, something we recognise as essential in this digital age. You will see from the long term plan below that the children have access to video and audio recording and editing. There are also two programming units for each year group, ensuring that children are able to learn and expand their coding skills.

Our Computing curriculum also takes time to make sense of life in a digital age. It asks such questions as ‘who owns the internet?’ and encourages the children to think carefully about the veracity of information found on the world wide web.
