Lesson 5 - Data for answers

In this lesson, pupils will think about questions that can be answered using collected data. Pupils will choose a question to focus on and then plan the data logging process that they need to complete. After they have completed their plan, they will set up the data loggers to check that their plan will work. This...

Lesson 4 - Analysing data

In this lesson, pupils will open an existing data file and use software to find out key information. The data file is a five-hour log of hot water cooling to room temperature. Later in the unit, pupils may choose to complete a warming experiment, starting with ice and allowing it to warm to room temperature.

Lesson 3 - Logging

In this lesson, pupils will explore how data loggers work. Pupils will try recording data at set moments in time and draw parallels with the data points that a data logger captures at regular intervals. Pupils will use data loggers independently from a computer, then they will connect the loggers to a computer and...

Lesson 2 - Data collection

This lesson will build on the idea of collecting data over time, and introduce pupils to the idea of collecting data automatically using computers. Computers can capture data from the physical world using input devices called ‘sensors’. Sensors can be connected to data loggers, which can collect data while not...

Lesson 1 - Answering questions

This lesson will provide pupils with an overview of the unit, building on and recapping learning about data from previous units. Pupils will consider what data can be collected and how it is collected. They will think about data being collected over time. Pupils will also think about questions that can and can’t be...

Data and information – Data logging Overview

In this unit, Year 4 pupils will explore the ideas of data and information, through collecting and analysing data. Teach Computing have provided a detailed Unit Overview and Learning Graph which explain each theme and how they link together across the unit of learning.

In the unit overview, each of the six...

Creating Media - Video Editing Overview

In this unit, Year 5 pupils will build on their understanding of creating media, through editing videos. Teach Computing have provided a detailed Unit Overview and Learning Graph which explain each theme and how they link together across the unit of learning.

In the unit overview, each of the six lessons...

Lesson 6 - Writing and testing algorithms

In this final lesson of the unit, pupils will build on the designs they developed in the previous lesson by creating an algorithm to meet the requirements of the given task. They will identify how they are going to use selection before writing their algorithm. They will then move into the code level to test their...

Lesson 5 - Drawing designs

In this lesson, pupils make use of their understanding of micro-controllers, output devices and selection when designing a project to meet the requirements of a given task. They identify how selection might be used in real-world situations to secure their understanding before identifying how they can apply this...

Lesson 4 - Starting with selection

In this lesson, pupils develop their understanding of how the flow of actions in algorithms and programs can be controlled by conditions. They are introduced to selection, and learn to represent conditions and actions using the If… Then… structure. They apply their understanding by using selection in an algorithm...
