Caroline Haslett Primary School

Nil satis nisi optimum. Nothing but the best is good enough

Computing Curriculum

Year 5 and 6 have learnt that a computer is a device that performs a range of functions according to how it is programmed. The children have been exploring the raspberry Pi, looking at its features and plugging in inputs and outputs. 

In Autumn term in Year 1, the children created a book using the Open University app - Our Story for iPad. The book is called ‘Look at Me’ and we put our own photographs, drawings, noises, speech and text together to produce a digital information book about ourselves. 

The Digital Leaders visited the Apple in July 2018.

06.12.17 - During Hour of Code week, Year 6 were visited by some of our knowledgeable parents who work in coding. A fabulous presentation by Mr. Carey and Mr. Rees inspired us. They helped us understand coding is easy to learn and made a coding job sound like fun!

Our Year 6 digital leaders organised and delivered lessons across the school with the help of our new recruits in Year 5. ‚Äč

Year 4 explore the digestive system using Virtual Reality. An interesting way to see how food travels through our body!
