Subject: ICT/Computing Year Group: 8






Programming: Pupils will use Scratch to develop an understanding of key programming concepts such as data representation, decision making and repetition. Pupils will use art based computer tools to create and manipulate characters and ultimately create their own game. Pupils will be able to change some of the data and the handling of the game to truly make it their own.


Christmas Market Project: Pupils will use publishing tools to develop a Christmas card. Pupils will also further develop their skills in using art based tools. Pupils will then create a model of a Christmas market using spreadsheet to show financial information. Pupils will use mathematical and logic formulae as well as other tools such as charts to represent this information.
