Bottesford Infant School

Tall Oaks From Little Acorns Grow


Within the curriculum children use computers for:
  • communicating ideas,
  • creating, storing and retrieving information,
  • solving problems,
  • solving and creating own algorithms 
  • debugging algorithms
  • digital literacy
  • understanding how to use technology safely and respectfully
  • graphic art and design,
  • researching.
Each class has regular access to computing through use of i-pads and interactive Promethean boards in the classroom.  Each year group has a set of 30 i-pads, with each year group having differentiated content through apps. The use of the internet is regulated through filtered access and children are not permitted to use the internet without adult supervision. Where possible, computing is taught within cross-curricular ways, using its deep links with literacy, maths, science, design technology, PE and through projects and exhibitions.

Hunting for QR codes with our partner, watching the dinosaur videos and then recording our learning in our dinosaur factfile!

QR code hunt in Bottesford Beck! We created movies using green screen and iMovie and then saved them to a QR code. We put them up around Bottesford Beck and we had children, families and the community taking part!

Programming with our robot, Dash!
