Computing at Chapter House

Computing is an essential backbone to teaching the national curriculum and preparing children for future employment.

Key Stage One and Two children practise using laptops and iPads in the classroom and are taught coding and e-safety in dedicated lessons.

Chapter House pupils in computing class

Chapter House pupils from EYFS to Key Stage 2 use a range of devices to learn safe computing and make lessons fun!
Digital Wellbeing

All pupils are taught e-safety and digital wellbeing within their computing lessons.

The Pastoral Team also runs a whole school awareness week on digital wellbeing to discuss current issues and remind students how to protect themselves online.

Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

For Chapter House’s youngest pupils computing is taught through role-play and using tech equipment indoors and out. Children might practise “painting” on an interactive whiteboard, drive remote controlled cars, use metal detectors or have fun communicating with walkie-talkies.

Key Stage One

Lessons in Computing include learning to programme a robot to move around the room, creating media on an iPad and communicating safely online.

Key Stage Two

From Year 3, children begin to design and write programs to accomplish a specific goal. They learn how to use the internet and touch on topics like communication, collaboration and how to collect information on search engines.
