Children in Reception and Pre Prep 1 (Year 1) are taught Computing by their class teacher. Core Computing skills are taught from Reception and by the time the children leave Donhead they will have become proficient users of technology. In addition they will have developed their computational thinking through the use of Bee-Bots and unplugged computing, and the children have a good understanding of how to use the Internet for effective research and communication
Ultimately, all pupils are expected to take away from their Computing lessons the skills necessary to implement the use of Computing in all areas of the School curriculum. The Purple Mash scheme of work for Computing is embedded across all year groups.
In addition, Pre Prep children from PP2 (Year 2) enter The Bebras Computing Challenge every November in association with the University of Oxford and Raspberry Pi.
