  • Use logical reasoning to predict the behaviour of simple programs.

  • Use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content.

  • Recognise common uses of information technology beyond school

 By the end of Key Stage 2 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.

  • Use sequence, selection and repetition in programs; work with variables and various forms of input and output.

  • Use logical reasoning to explain how simple algorithms work and to detect and correct errors in algorithms and programs.

  • Understand computer networks including the internet; how they can provide multiple services, such as the world-wide web; and the opportunities they offer for communication and collaboration.

  • Use search technologies effectively, appreciate how results are selected and ranked, and be discerning in evaluating digital content.

  • Select, use and combine a variety of software (including internet services) on a range of digital devices to design & create a range of programs, systems and content that accomplish given goals, including collecting, analysing, evaluating and presenting data and information.
