All workshops that fall under this category allow pupils to explore and learn about the hardware components that make up computers and computer systems. Pupils will be able to experiment with and manipulate a range of hardware and computing devices in order to improve their development in this area. Unplugged activities will also be used to illustrate key concepts in how computers process and execute instructions.
This is a computing lesson with a difference.

The new Design & Technology Programmes of Study are also partially covered at both Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3.Read moreLet's Doodle: What will you create?
