Computing in the EYFS
The Reception children have been using a range of different technology to develop their computing skills. They have been using the interactive screens to mark make as well as helping to develop their mouse and keyboard skills. The children have also been using programs such as www.phonicsplay.co.uk to help with hearing initial sounds and blending words. Some children have even been playing games to help them with their counting!
Computing in Key Stage 1
Computing has looked a little different for the year 1 and 2 children this term. They have been lucky enough to have been allocated their own tablet for their computing sessions. It has been good for the children to learn how to use a different and new device and to learn about logging in and turning their tablets on and off.
So far they have used their tablets to access purple mash and complete set 2do tasks by their teachers including creating their own algorithms, using 2paint and spelling games.
The year 2 children have also been able to use their tablets in other areas of the curriculum including using phonics play as well as making their own stop animation stories in English and RE.
