Being an Engineer: Computing

Being an Engineer: Computing at Blackhorse


At Blackhorse, we seek to prepare our children to be ready for the digital world of tomorrow by providing a strong and challenging computing curriculum, which has an emphasis on coding and computer programming.


The computing curriculum covers the following areas:

  1. Coding and Computer Programming (at least two units per year from Y1 - Y6)
  2. Data Handling
  3. Research and Communication
  4. Creative Media (video, animation and sound) 
  5. E-Safety (also see PSHE curriculum and being a philosopher)
  6. Computer Modelling and Simulations


These areas are often enhanced with computing in our different enquiries from Year 1 to Year 6.
