- To understand that web pages are built using different programming languages, and one of them is HTML
- To understand and identify examples of HTML tags
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
Pupils needing extra support: Demonstrate what the different tags do and get them to explore changing wording between the <h1> and </h> tags, e.g. change <h1>Hi there!</h1> to <h1>Hi there friend!</h1> and get them to see the change by using the ‘Show’ tab.
Pupils working at greater depth: Challenge children to find tags not mentioned during class discussion and find out how they are used. Refer them to the ‘HTML Cheat Sheet’: here for more html examples to explore.
