Computing in Year 1

Pupils should be taught to:

  • understand what algorithms are, how they are used and how they need to be clear to work effectively

  • create and debug simple programs

  • use technology to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content

  • recognise common uses of information technology beyond school

  • use technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private; identify where to go for help and support when they have concerns about content or contact on the internet or other online technologies.
