Computing is a fundamental part of the curriculum at Emmanuel Holcombe and we recognise the growing use of IT equipment in everyday life, both at school and at home. Our learning follows a primary computing programme called Purple Mash and covers 3 specific areas:
Computer Science – understanding how computers and computer systems work and how they are designed and programmed
Digital Literacy – developing ideas and language through the use of ICT and using and applying these skills in other areas of the curriculum
Information Technology – using IT devices to create programs and systems.
