Computing at Talavera will equip children to develop their computational thinking and creativity to understand and influence the world around them. Computer science forms a key part of the computing curriculum and allows children to develop their resilience, curiosity and problem solving skills through the use of programming and reading code. We aim for them to become critical thinkers who are able to evaluate the reliability of a range of online platforms. In addition to this, children will improve their digital literacy skills to be able to use, express themselves and develop ideas through information and communication technology at a level suitable for them to be active participants in an ever changing digital world. Finally, children will explore what makes a good digital citizen in order for them to act in a safe and responsible way whilst online enabling them to reflect upon the digital footprint they have begun to create.
