Computing

Nursery
We use ICT in lots of different ways. We encourage the children to explore technological toys and equipment such as remote control cars, digital cameras and voice recorders, and have a variety of different programmes on the computers which the children love to explore, both with an adult and independently.
We particularly enjoy using Busy Things (online site) which engages the children’s’ imaginations and develops their hand-eye coordination, whilst supporting their learning about numbers, patterns, and problem solving.  We also use a programme called Reading Eggs which supports the children in learning their phonics (letter sounds), and encourages their early reading skills.
Our aim is that by the time our children move up to the Reception classes that they will have developed their mouse control and be confidently using the wealth of games and programmes available to them.
