At Westmeads we aim to equip our children with the skills, knowledge and understanding of computing they will need for the rest of their lives. The children will learn how computers and computer systems work, develop their ideas using technology and will create a range of content.
Our school is well resourced with both hardware and software. Every class has 3 PCs and an interactive Clever Touch board. Children have access to Bee-Bots (programmable toys), cameras and tuff cams (hand held camcorders) and easi-speaks (Child friendly Dictaphones). We also have a portable tablet trolley which is home to 15 brand new iPads, as well as additional Windows tablets to assist our children in their learning.
We have worked hard to ensure skills progression throughout the year groups and Computing is planned for with an aim of linking the objectives to other areas of the curriculum, to give the subject real meaning and purpose.
