Computing is when we learn to program and control electrical devices.
At Birchfield, our aim is to provide a high-quality computing education which equips children to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and make an impact on the world. The curriculum will teach children key knowledge about how computers and computer systems work, and how they are designed and programmed. All children will have the opportunity to gain an understanding of computational systems of all kinds, whether or not they include computers. By the end of the journey at Birchfield, children will have gained the key knowledge and skills in the three main areas of the computing curriculum:
Computer science - programming and understanding computational thinking,
Information technology - using computer systems to process, present, retrieve and send information,
Digital safety - evaluating digital content and using technology safely and respectfully.
