Computing in St Michael's
We love Computing here at St Michael's.
We take part in all sorts of different activities learning all about the three strands of computing : Digital literacy, computer science and information technology.
We take part in enthusiastic lessons and in competitions too!
As part of our STEM day activities children from KS1 and KS2 were lucky enough to take part in a robotics workshop where they were able to build and program a robot.
There was great feedback from pupils and staff alike. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and we learnt lots too!
It's competition time!
The time has come for a brand new computing competition.
This term the whole school will be taking part in a new computing competition.
Key Stage 2 will be taking part in a film competition using technology to create a film about our online behaviour and linking back to our Safer internet Day Theme of All Fun and Games.
