Welcome to ICT and Computing
The use of information and communication technology is an integral part of the national curriculum and is a key skill for everyday life. Computers, tablets, programmable robots, digital and video cameras are a few of the tools that can be used to acquire, organise, store, manipulate, interpret, communicate and present information.
At Studfall we recognise that pupils are entitled to quality hardware and software and a structured and progressive approach to the learning of the skills needed to enable them to use it effectively.
Fundamental to this work is a core understanding of the safe use and practices that need to be understood by all because of the potential dangers that exist in the online world. Children are taught what is, and is not, acceptable and what to do if they are not happy or comfortable with any online content. Please see our e-safety page for more information.
This term the children in both Year 1 and 2 are enjoying learning about Algorithms and Coding using tablets.
To support your child's learning the following apps/online games are available.

Espresso Coding @ Key Stage 2
This Term, children in all year groups will be completing their first Coding Unit.
Espresso Coding is straightforward to use. The interface is clear and the activities focus on engaging learners and developing a deep understanding of the processes of coding. Pupils enjoy this unit and have the opportunity to create their own simple games and APPs.
This new development has enhanced the early principles of programming skills, which will take place in the new computing curriculum.
