COMPUTING SYLLABUS

KEY STAGES 1 AND 2 (KS1 & KS2)

Our KS1 and KS2 computing syllabus consists of 12 strands, each lasting 3 to 4 weeks.  The syllabus was devised using a concept called Spiral Learning.  Spiral learning is a teaching method based on the premise that a student learns more about a subject each time the topic is reviewed or encountered, and in doing so, expands their knowledge, or improves their skill level.  In addition to this, each subject informs the following topic, i.e. Word Processing informs Presentations, or Spreadsheets informs Flatfile Databases.
