Computing - Miss Taylor


What is the Big Idea @ Balliol?


Computing is both highly functional and creative.  It should be exciting and encourage pupils to take risks and try new approaches.  However, it also needs to be methodical and logical.  It is highly motivational and ever changing which we embrace at Balliol.


ICT in a Nutshell

Computing has a role to play as a functional support across the curriculum.  Therefore it can be used to research, record, analyse and review learning in every subject.  


At Balliol, children learn the key skills required to become programmers and electronic engineers.  They learn about the logic and pattern of coding and how to solve interesting and stimulating problems through use of IT.  They learn about control technology, both on screen through coding and through programming models.
