Computing

The ACET Key Skills grid is a guideline on the basic computer skills that should be included in each year group to ensure that children leave all ACET primaries with a strong grasp of common software and hardware and are able to access the KS3 content at entry.

The Computing Vocabulary document outlines key terminology to refer to in KS1 and KS2.

If your child expresses an interest in computing there are many resources on the web you can access for free to improve their understanding of programming and coding!  We recommend https://www.codeclub.org.uk/projects which has lots of free projects to complete. All children should be familiar with Scratch software from their computing lesson in school so will be able to engage with the step by step instructions and challenges in these projects to further their learning.  You do not need Scratch installed on your computer to practise programming. If you visit https://scratch.mit.edu/ you can access an online version of scratch for free to complete the projects!  If you have any questions, feel free to contact Mrs Keeton.
