At Plumtree School, we believe that digital literacy will help children thrive across all areas of the curriculum.

We have a variety of devices across school to develop children’s competencies with laptops, iPads, Beebots, Microbits, crumbles and other coding kits.

Children have weekly computer science lessons where they will learn about:

How technology helps us

How technology works

Coding, algorithms, debugging and programming skills

Developing logical reasoning skills

Developing competency with a variety of apps and programs

Using external devices such as Microbits and Crumbles

All of this is underpinned with a strong sense of using technology safely and respectfully.

These computing skills are then applied across the curriculum to help children develop in all areas of learning.
