Before the lesson
- To decompose a tablet computer
Pupils should be taught to:
- Design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals, including controlling or simulating physical systems; solve problems by decomposing them into smaller parts
- Use sequence, selection, and repetition in programs; work with variables and various forms of input and output
- Use logical reasoning to explain how some simple algorithms work and to detect and correct errors in algorithms and programs
Pupils needing extra support: May benefit from a word bank of key terms and the Link: ‘Simon Haughton – Identify computer components’ for easier recognition.
Pupils working at greater depth: Should explain what the parts do and why they are important.
