CORONA VIRUS - HOMEWORKING
Year 11 ONLY
If the pupils would like to do any coding, whether that’s Microbit or Python, there are a number of different projects and activities available on there to try out, with step by step instructions or if they would just like to experiment around with code via the ‘Let’s Code’ option from the drop down list.
Whilst pupils would need an actual microbit to download and try out any coding physically for example seeing if the ‘Step Counter’ coding works, they can still see if any coding they have done works by using the microbit on the screen and pressing the required buttons. Probably not as fun trying in person but they can still see the results of their coding.

GCSE Computer Science – BBC Bitesize
If any pupils would like anything to read Computer Science related then BBC Bitesize Computer Science is a good site to visit. Pupils ideally should click on the exam specification option OCR as this is what their work has been based on.
This is similar to the Microbit link above but provides a wider range of activities and projects such as allowing pupils to build games, music, a website and a robot for example, with step by step instructions and on screen interactions.
Key Stage 3
The curriculum covers three areas:
Having the skills, knowledge and understanding to use ICT as a tool for learning.
Understanding how the computer works, how to correctly use file and folder structures, naming files and troubleshooting basic problems with Computing.
Understand wider issues about the impact of Computing on society and the need to be safe online.
Being able to sequence instructions to create an outcome. Using different programming techniques to control external devices as well as events on the computer.

In Key Stage 4 pupils can opt for the OCR Entry Level Certificate in Computer Science.
The course covers three areas:
- Computer hardware, software, memory and storage
- Moral, legal and environmental concerns
Computational Thinking, Algorithms and Programming
