Computing

At Green Street Green we use ICT in most subjects and allow the children the opportunity to develop their skills in a variety of different ways.

 

We have a Media Suite that all the children visit each week where they can access a wide variety of programs that cover all areas of the curriculum.   Our Suite is equipped with 32 laptops and an interactive touch screen board.

 

We also have a robust Wireless network - which has enabled us to make full use of  our 32 iPads which can be used for a whole class learning or for use in small groups.

 

We encourage the children to experience ICT through a variety of different topics and allow them the opportunity to share and develop their understanding.

 

In all year groups we aim to develop computing skills, building upon previous experiences and developing them further. We also aim to introduce new experiences to help further their enjoyment of the computing curriculum, such as using animation and photography.

 

All the classrooms have a computer and the whole school is linked to a networked broadband connection. Every classroom has access to interactive facilities. The children use technology for:-

  • Word processing and associated keyboard skills
  • Coding
  • Problem solving
  • Desk Top Publishing
  • Data handling
  • Fun

Young children particularly, pick up these skills very quickly.

 

Our Media Suite gives children the opportunity to work in class groups to improve their computer knowledge and skills.

 

All children and their parents are required to sign an Internet Agreement before they are able to participate in work which involves use of the internet.
