The Mount Stewart Schools

Computing

Our Computing Curriculum is taught from Nursery to Year 6 where skills are built upon year on year, until the end of year Key Stage Two where children will emerge accomplished in many aspects of computing. We have developed a curriculum map that ties in with the concepts the children will be learning about that half term. 

 

Children in all key stages learn computer programming and coding, testing and debugging their apps as they go. We have a wide variety of resources to support learning both in computing lessons and across the curriculum. We have a computing suite for Key Stage One and Key Stage Two. Classrooms are all resourced with interactive whiteboards which are used to enhance children’s learning. The school also makes use of shared resources such as iPads, laptops and netbooks which can be used within lessons or as part of group work.
