Programming

EYFS

Children recognise that a range of technology is used in places such as homes and schools. They select and use technology for particular purposes

National Curriculum

Pupils to be taught to:

  • understand what algorithms are; how they are implemented as programs on digital devices; and that programs execute by following precise and unambiguous instructions
  • create and debug simple programs
use logical reasoning to predict the behaviour of simple programs
Reception Year 1 Year 2

The children will explore a variety of electronic devices in free flow and adult led sessions to gain an understanding of basic programming and cause and effect.

  • Use a variety of electronic toys in play situations (Bee-Bots, remote control toys) using basic directional language
  • Explore toys that simulate control devices e.g. cash tills
  • Explore the commands needed to control a range ofelectronic toys
  • Be aware of everyday devices that sense data e.g. bar codes,metal detectors, sound recorders, light sensors, automatic doors, thermometers
  • Program a simple floor robot (Bee-Bot) to carry out a short sequence of steps
Respond to simple cause and effect devices (push a button to hear a sound)

The children will use Bee-Bots and computer programs (e.g. 2code) to explore following and creating their own algorithms (sets of instructions)

  • I can explain what an algorithm is, and give everyday examples
  • I can write a simple algorithm(using symbols)
  • I can follow a sequence of instructions (symbols)
  • I can write a sequence of instructions to move a programmable toy using symbols

Data

EYFS

Children recognise that a range of technology is used in places such as homes and schools. They select and use technology for particular purposes

National Curriculum

Pupils to be taught to:

use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content
Reception Year 1 Year 2

The children will sort objects using ICT and practical objects. They will also have opportunities to add to class pictograms. (Cross curricular links to Maths)

  • Begin to develop simple classification skills by carrying out simple sorting activities away from the computer

  • Produce simple pictograms with help                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

The children will explore pictograms using programs such as 2count and then answer questions about their graphs. (Cross curricular links to Maths)

Graphs

  • I can sort items into groups
  • I can make pictograms, and I know that computers help me to make pictograms more quickly
  • I can make changes to the information in my pictograms
  • I know that if I put the wrong numbers in my charts my pictograms will also be wrong
  • I can use my pictograms to help me answer questions                                                                                                                                                                                          

The children will explore databases using 2question and 2investigate. They will also create block graphs using 2graph or RM starting graph. (Cross curricular links to Maths)

Databases

  • I can sort items into groups by asking yes / no questions (e.g. Guess Who games)
  • I can use a branching database to sort and identify items
  • I can search a prepared database to answer simple questions
  • I can collect a set of data and present it as a simple graph

I can save, open and edit my work

 

Communication

EYFS

Children recognise that a range of technology is used in places such as homes and schools. They select and use technology for particular purposes

National Curriculum

Pupils to be taught to:

use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content
Reception Year 1 Year 2

The children will use computers and large screens to develop mouse control and when appropriate use the keyboard to type their name.

  • Develop mouse control
  • Use a paint program to make marks, using simple tools, to communicate their ideas
  • Use different forms of electronic communication in free play
Begin to use a keyboard to produce text on screen, and develop familiarity with letters, numbers, backspace, arrow keys and space bar                                                                                        

The children will use simple word processing programs such as 2publish+, and PowerPoint to develop their word processing skills and edit their work.

Word processing

  • I can use letters, basic punctuation, spacebar and enter key to type words and sentences quickly
  • I can use backspace to make corrections
  • I can use shift key for punctuation
  • I am starting to use two hands when typing                                                                                                                                                                                                                         

The children will continue to develop their word processing skills using 2publish+, PowerPoint and Word. They will begin to use fonts appropriately to give the desired effect.

Word processing

  • I can edit and improve my work by changing, adding or removing words
  • I can change the font size, colour and style to change my work
I can word process short texts, rather than copying up written work
