At Fox Hill Primary we try to use computers and new technologies as much as possible to enhance our curriculum and help children learn key skills. All classes have a minimum of two lessons per week in our specialist Computer Suite to develop their computing skills.
Children also have access to our special Multimedia Suite where they can develop their creative computing skills to help them make their own movies, animations, create comics, compose music and more! We even have our own special green screen to help transport children directly into their films!
In line with the new National Curriculum, we have created our own scheme of work for computing. Children will learn skills across a range of topics including coding and programming their own games and apps! There is also opportunity for them to develop and refine other computer life skills such as typing, word processing, data handling, creating and editing pictures etc. Central to all of the work covered is how to use the Internet in an effective way including how to keep safe, protect our information and about cyber-bullying.
