    The school has chosen to use Discovery Education Software and Planning.

    Discovery Education Coding provides usl with everything we need to get up to speed with this challenging curriculum area. Based on the National Curriculum for Computing, Discovery Education Coding helps teachers to deliver the following objectives in a fun and engaging way:

    KS1

    Understand what algorithms are, how they are implemented as programs on digital devices, and that programs execute by following a sequence of instructions

     

    Write and test simple programs

     

    Use logical reasoning to predict the behaviour of simple programs

    KS2

    Design and write 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; generate appropriate inputs and predicted outputs to test programs

     

    Use logical reasoning to explain how a simple algorithm works and to detect and correct errors in algorithms and programs
