At Northfield our Computing curriculum is really varied and we are lucky to have Mr Gordon, a specialist Computing teacher, to help us!
Y3 and 4 continue to develop their ICT skills as well as beginning to understand programming language using screen turtles and Scratch. Y5 and 6 then continue their programming understanding by using Scratch in more complex ways and programming Micro:bits.
New for this year is our 3D printer! This was trialled by Y5 last year and was so successful we were given a printer for free by Colido! This year every year group will have chance to use the 3D printer in their DT or Computing lessons and by the time pupils leave they will have develop excellent CAD skills too.
In addition to our Computer Suite we have an expanding bank of mobile technology, including 18 iPads.
