A quality Computing Lesson at Eastway

Computing is taught from Early Years to Year 6, using Hi Impact and Rising Stars planning.

  2. Create and debug simple programs.
  3. Use logical reasoning to predict the behaviour of simple programs.
  4. Use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content.
  5. Recognise common uses of information technology beyond school.
