Using and applying Computing within English and Mathematics:

In English, Computing also ensures that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology.

In Mathematics, children develop various strategies that allow them to work through mathematical problems; working systematically, pattern finding, trial and error etc. These are important skills that are needed in developing children’s skills in programming and digital thinking.
