- To understand how to use a word processor
Pupils should be taught to:
- Use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content
- Recognise common uses of information technology beyond school
Pupils needing extra support: Make sure children choose a simple book to type and expect them to only type the first sentence or two rather than the whole page.
Pupils working at greater depth: Look for a book with ‘special’ characters on the first page or more advanced keyboard features such as speech or question marks.
