Our Technologies and Computing curriculum block aims to develop pupil’s technical, digital and practical abilities to perform everyday tasks and gain knowledge and understand of their world. It aims to enable them to participate in a modern, technical world and build a range of knowledge and skills in order for them to gain independence and confidence in their abilities. We want to encourage pupils to use creativity and imagination to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems through first hand experiences. Technologies and Computing is about thinking and problem solving skills. Pupils will be encouraged to explore, observe, solve problems, think critically, make decisions and to communicate why they have made decisions. Pupils should develop a repertoire of knowledge, understanding and skills in order to make products that can be used in their lives outside school.
Pupils should be equipped with the knowledge and skills to enable them to know how digital systems work and enable them to become digitally literate and active and safe participants in a digital world.
