How we promote learning in Computing?
At St John’s we try to use computers and new technologies as much as possible to enhance our curriculum and help children learn key skills. All classes have access to tablets and laptops, each classroom has an interactive screen. Children are encouraged to develop their creative computing skills to help them make their own movies, animations, create comics, compose music and more!

What does Computing look like at St John’s?
Children learn skills across a range of topics including coding and programming their own games! There is also opportunity for them to develop other computer life skills such as word processing, data handling, creating and editing pictures etc. Central to all of the work covered is how to use the Internet in an effective way including how to keep safe on-line.
