At Church Hill Infant School we recognise the importance of technology and how it is always evolving. We understand how technology plays a big part in children’s lives and how we must keep adapting our teaching to suit the ever-changing world of technology. Our Computing curriculum allows children to learn key skills in coding, word processing, photography and basic computer skills. Technology is introduced in the foundation stage through exploring and play. These experiences are then built upon in the next two years where children are taught more specific skills with a focus on the year group topic. Many Computing lessons are woven with other subjects to maximise learning opportunities. We are a school that is proud to have an award for e-safety and we recognise the huge importance of educating children to be confident with using technology safely. We want children to know what some of the risks are and what to do if they do come across a difficult situation. We ensure e-safety is taught regularly through assemblies, celebrating safer internet day and informing our parents of the latest updates. This year we will be sending out a half termly newsletter for parents which includes the work that children have been doing in school.
Please keep looking at Twitter, Seesaw and the school website throughout the year for updates and links.
