Digital Technology

Through the creative use of desktop applications, the girls produce audio-visual presentations, informative booklets and animations to support their learning across the curriculum.

Coding is introduced in Year 1 using programmable toys and, through the years, these skills are developed and extended using both block programming and text-based languages, leading to the ability to code simple computer games.  From Year 5 robotics is introduced where pupils construct the robots and code their movement

A focus is placed on the pupils developing into responsible digital citizens, so lessons regularly cover important E-safety messages.
