ICT has always proved a popular part of the curriculum! With the recently upgraded ICT suite, children have their own work area and have access to a variety of programmes ranging from word processing, graphic design, spreadsheet applications, interactive programmes and the internet, amongst others.
Pupils are introduced to basic ICT skills from as early as the Nursery and Reception class and commence formal training from as early as Year 1. Touch typing skills are firmly established from Year 3 through highly entertaining web applications. More advanced programmes are tackled from Year 6 allowing pupils to be able to stretch their knowledge of computers in an exciting and challenging way. They also do coding with the help of ‘Scratch’ and ‘Python’ programs.
We have over 40 iPads that are used frequently throughout the school in various lessons and children in the Nursery are enjoying their brand new table iPad!
