Welcome to Computing at Newfold
"Through the teaching of Computing we facilitate children's participation in a world of rapidly-changing technology, where they are able to explore, analyse, exchange and present information safely. As a result, children will have the necessary skills to use information in a non-discriminating and effective manner to become confident, creative and independent learners."
Progression of Skills
We took part in Safer Internet Day on February 8th 2022.
Katherine Howard came into school from Smoothwall and worked with every class. she talked about keeping safe when online gaming and how to use the chat function appropriately. How to stay safe when using technology and whether we can trust everything we see online.
Katherine also held a well attended Parent Workshop after school to help our parents keep their children safe at home.
Our children in Years 4 and 5 have really enjoyed taking part in our lunchtime Roblox club. This is a chance to play a variety of games in a safe and structured environment with our friends.
