Teaching Computer Science in the Primary School
.


Developing children’s skills in using computers
From
To
to develop their knowledge
of how digital technology
works.
Aims
The National Curriculum for computing aims to ensure that all pupils:

can understand and apply the fundamental principles of computer science,
including logic, algorithms, data representation, and communication.

can analyse problems in computational terms, and have practical
experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems

are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information
and communication technology.
Take the problem solving toolkit and
apply these to situations elsewhere.

Break problems down into smaller
parts.

Look for patterns as a way of solving
broad classes of problems.

Look for simpler, faster ways of
getting things done.
How will this look at KS1 ?
KS1 includes work on algorithms
and
programming.

Taught using programmable toys,
moving to some screen based
programming during KS1

How will this look at KS2 ?
Key stage 2 sees further emphasis on programming, linked to algorithms.

There’s an expectation that pupils
understand how the Internet works, and
that this is different from the Web.

They should also understand how search engines operate and be able to use these.
