The use of information and communication technology is an integral part of the national curriculum and is a key skill for everyday life. Computers, tablets, programmable robots, digital and video cameras are a few of the tools that can be used to acquire, organise, store, manipulate, interpret, communicate and present information. The Computing curriculum replaces the old ICT curriculum. There is much more focus on computer coding / programming and sharing and working with others collaboratively. The Computing curriculum is divided into 3 main areas; Computer Science, Digital Literacy and Information Technology.

At Cumwhinton we subscribe to the fantastic website 'Purple Mash,' which enables us to teach much of the Computing curriculum. All children have their own log in, so that they can access this website at home to practise their computing skills.
If your child doesn't know their log in, please see the class teacher.
