Data matters

Children investigate the concept of “big data” sharing its application in the world for such areas as meteorology, mapping, traffic flow, etc.  They review how data and information are stored and searched on computer networks. They use search operators and linked queries to obtain research results efficiently.  They investigate their digital footprints and discuss ways of using online tools responsibly, securely and safely. They design, create and search flat-file databases, producing reports from the data and considering accuracy and efficiency.

Information models

Children use spreadsheet software to structure numeric information, making calculations using formulae and functions.  They import data collected using dataloggers and analyse it using functions within the software.  They carry out what-if modelling, using this for prediction and present results using graphs.

Robotics and systems

Children investigate automated systems in the wider world and consider the programming instructions which could control them.  They create and debug algorithms and then use different programming languages to write the related programs.  They program physical devices, controlling inputs and outputs.  They use sequence, selection, repetition and variables in their programs.

Morphing image

Children use storyboards to create live film and animations for specific audiences.  They demonstrate their understanding of copyright and ownership, crediting the sources of materials they use. 2.vii

Sound works

Children create soundscapes, incorporating different content. They target their work to meet the need s of specific audience and they gather feedback from that audience. 2.vii

Staying connected

The children use blogs for collaborative projects in school, uploading different types of digital content, while checking copyright and crediting sources.  They work as a class to build a wiki around a class topic, taking editorial responsibility for their work. They know the school’s eSafety rules and encourage other children to keep safe online.
