Computing is a new subject introduced in the 2014 curriculum to replace ICT. Year 2 are always very excited and enthusiastic about visiting the ICT room every Wednesday. They love the challenges and opportunities offered by the technologically rich world in which we live.
This year, the children have completed a range of different activities during their computing (ICT) lessons. They are becoming increasingly confident logging on and off the computer. Most can now navigate to different software programs and have started to use Google search to research different topics.
Offline the students have also been working hard creating their own algorithms to direct each other walk in different shapes on the playground. They are also getting to grips with turning left and right and instructing a program to turn left or right 90 degrees. Recently they have started to put all of this information into practise and are now creating simple programs on the computer. Last lesson they wrote a program that made balloons disappear when clicked.
