What is Computing at Romsey Abbey C of E Primary School

A high-quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Computing has deep links with mathematics, science, and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. The core of computing is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Building on this knowledge and understanding, our pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content.

Computing also ensures that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.

What does Computing look like at Romsey Abbey Primary?

Children learn how computers work through use of programmes like Scratch and by programming the small, simple yet programmable Beebots and Spheros. Our aim is for the children to produce interactive media, games as well as multimedia presentations using a range of devices including Chromebooks and iPads.
