At Ford, we integrate computing within our topics the best we can. We introduce the children to programming and basic algorithms from a young age. Children become confident with this aspect of the curriculum by using bee-bots, Scratch, Codemonkey and we use the HTML 5 programming language to design websites.
The children are taught how to use technology to research and evaluate information. Children will use a range of software so that they can accomplish given goals. By the time children leave our school, we hope that they are confident choosing the correct programs that not only complete the task at hand, but also the ones which they are comfortable with.
