Computing

Computing at Acre Hall is taught in discrete sessions through Junior Jam as well as through topic. The children will be using iPads to develop their skills in coding and programming, digital literacy and information technology. They will also learn about how to stay safe online.

The use of iPads in the classroom has revolutionised the way children are taught. iPads engage, motivate and inspire pupils’ learning, and Junior Jam allows children to complete the computing curriculum through this method of learning. As the world becomes increasingly rich with technology, at Acre Hall, we will teach the pupils to create programs, films, music and a range of other content, whilst encouraging them to express themselves and develop their own ideas using the latest apps.

Children will also be learning simple processing skills through topic based learning. This might include research, word processing and presentations.
