Year 1

In the Autumn term we used the vehicle of the children’s stories in Computing. The children learned to navigate the rules of online safety and communication. The children made animations based on an online situation they may encounter.

The children in Year 1 were using iPads to search for maps of their local area. This helped them to develop their IT skills as they purposely used technology to retrieve information.

In the Spring term the children used technology to classify mini-beasts. They learned about gathering and presenting information by watching a David Attenborough nature documentary to give us inspiration. They were then able to use digital tools to create their own mini-beast book.

In the summer term the children are focusing on developing their IT skills.

The children will learn the basic skills of stop frame animation and produce a simple animated movie using basic shapes. They will also start to learn about using digital tools to communicate and give feedback.
