Unit 9 Analysing Data: 

This unit allows the pupils to explore different ways of performing research.  They use a spreadsheet to sort & filter data in order to answer questions.  They also search the internet to find out the answers to a number of questions using a variety of techniques.  Final task - they will create a family based quiz where they plan the questions and research the answers. 


Unit 8 Pivot stick – Creating animations: 

This creative and fun unit teaches the pupils to create “frame-by-frame” animations using Pivot Stick Animator software. It focuses on importing images and creating natural body movements. They will then plan, create and evaluate a short animation to teach pupils about road safety.
