At LVPS, we aim to integrate the use of ICT across the curriculum. The children have access to Chromebooks on a daily basis to aide them with Accelerated Reader quizzes, Mathletics and Spellodrome tasks, or simply to augment the day's lessons through research or looking up word definitions.
In addition to this, the children have weekly Computing lessons. The majority of these will take place in our Learning Resources Centre, where each child will have individual access to a laptop. However, not all Computing lessons are best taught in front of a computer, so we run a variety of lessons outdoors or through practical classroom based learning.
Our KS1 curriculum is particularly focused on developing basic computer literacy skills. These include the usual task such as logging in and saving work, but also an introduction to algorithms and coding through Mouse Bots and programming their classmates!
