Information and Communication Technology increasingly shapes the way children live, and influences the way they learn. We ensure our pupils are equipped to excel in an increasingly technological world.
ICT is taught as a separate subject to all classes from Year 3 onwards. Hampton Prep pupils build up increasingly complex skills, which are developed through a range of activities and projects.
All pupils have access to laptops and iPads, as well as desktop machines. Classrooms have the latest Promethean touch screen whiteboards.
ICT lessons incorporate ‘Lego Robotics’ to help aid the teaching of programming. This also compliments our work around coding using the program Scratch. Pupils also cover a range of other ICT skills from podcasting to ‘stop motion’ animation.
At Hampton Pre-Prep & Prep, safe internet use is taught as a priority from an early age. This is built into both the ICT curriculum and the PSHE curriculum. The School has also invested in a touch typing resource called ‘Nessy Fingers’, which is a fun and exciting way for children to learn how to touch type.
On leaving the School the pupils are well equipped to use ICT to inform, enhance and complement their education.
