‘We need technology in every classroom and in every student and teacher’s hand, because it is the pen and paper of our time, and it is the lens through which we experience much of our world’ – David Warlick
At Boundary, we believe that computing is a subject that not only stands alone but is also an integral part of all learning. Computing is taught explicitly across 3 half terms in each year group, within these lessons transferable skills are taught and used. Boundary provide a high-quality computing education which equips children to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Our computing curriculum is split into 4 key concepts; Multimedia, Online Safety, Programming & Algorithms and Using & Applying.
In school we have a range of ICT equipment to support and enhance our learning such as Chromebooks, iPads and BeeBots.

For our WOW this morning, we played a range of games using coding. Each game required us to do certain things, such as collect gems or make a character get from A to B. To do each of these things, we had to use lines of code and connect them to make the character...
