Engage Stage

Thursday 9th September

This week we have been learning lots about the history of computing.

Did you know that the origins of computing can be traced back 2000 years?


In class we have made timelines of the advancements in computer technology for each decade, adding images and captions.


What do you think?

Today we also completed our fact files on significant people who have helped to change the world of technology.

Do you know who they all are and why they are important?

  • Sir Tim Berners-Lee
  • Bill Gates
  • Steve Wozniak
  • Blaise Pascal
  • Marrissa Mayer


In the afternoon we learned more about Networks that are used on a daily basis such as: the railways, our circulatory system and motorways, we then moved on to look at computer networks.

Here we are trying to work out how we could link each of us up to a LAN (local area network)
