Computing and ICT

Year 7

Over the course of the year, students will learn a combination of ICT and computing concepts starting with ICT skills for learning, the students will learn about the hardware inside the computer and devices that can be used to make the computer do different tasks. As the students move through the year they will develop their presentation skills over two units of work one in Spring focused on presentations and then another in the Summer aimed at creating business documents. Between these two units students will learn programming using scratch to make a computer game and then will look at computational thinking and problem solving with algorithms learning how a computer thinks.
