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 learn programming, using Google Classroom tools for a range of purposes, using TinkerCAD to design items to be made on the 3D printer, programming using Micro:bits and making animations using a range of techniques. We follow the Project:Evolve Digital Literacy scheme of work.
We currently have a suite of 24 pupil ipads and 50 Chromebooks which are supplimented with PCs in classrooms and the library.
We also have 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.
