LKS2 - Knowledge
The national curriculum for Computing aims to ensure that all pupils:
- can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation
- can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems
- can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems
- are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology
During years 3 and 4 pupils will be taught to use the following ….
Pupils should be taught to:
- ï§ design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals, including controlling or simulating physical systems; solve problems by decomposing them into smaller parts
- ï§ use sequence, selection, and repetition in programs; work with variables and various forms of input and output
- ï§ use logical reasoning to explain how some simple algorithms work and to detect and correct errors in algorithms and programs
- ï§ understand computer networks including the internet; how they can provide multiple services, such as the world wide web; and the opportunities they offer for communication and collaboration
- ï§ use search technologies effectively, appreciate how results are selected and ranked, and be discerning in evaluating digital content
- ï§ select, use and combine a variety of software (including internet services) on a range of digital devices to design and create a range of programs, systems and content that accomplish given goals, including collecting, analysing, evaluating and presenting data and information
- ï§ use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly; recognise acceptable/unacceptable behaviour; identify a range of ways to report concerns about content and contact.
