At Northfield we aim to enhance our pupils' skills in Computing and Digital Literacy so that the children are able to use technology safely, and have a good understanding of not only how to use different devices and software, but how to create content on these devices.
Pupils learn a wide range of skills throughout their time here. Favourite projects include using Scratch to programme games, designing non-linear presentations in Powerpoint, using TinkerCAD to design items to be made on the 3D printer, programming using Micro:bits and making interactive maps on googlemaps.
We currently have a suite of 16 networked PCs and 24 pupil ipads, along with other excting exquipment such as digital microscopes and thermomers, Micro:bits and data loggers. This allows pupils to use technology purposefully across other curriculum areas.
