Key Stage 3 Computing
Remote learning has got off to an amazing start. Well done, girls! Please keep up the hard work and remember to be constantly uploading your work to be marked.
This half term sees the girls completing a variety of units. Year 7 are learning about interactive presentations and hyperlinks, Year 8 are learning all about the history of technology including the history of computing. This will lead to looking at the future of technology and designing a new piece of future technology. Year 9 are looking at theme parks and learning a range of skills from marketing to working out the finances and designing a ride. I am looking forward to seeing a variety of ride ideas and to see how the theme park will make money.
GCSE Computer Science
Live sessions have taken place already and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed keeping in touch with the students using TEAMS.
Year 11 are currently completing exam papers, following an exam paper walk through last term. We are planning to cover pseudocode again to build confidence in this area.
Year 10 are going to start to look at the environmental and ethical impact of computing in everyday lives and I look forward to seeing what work they produce over the next few weeks.
BTEC Creative Media Productions
Year 11 are currently completing a practise component 3 (externally set work). They are preparing for the component brief that was released last week as part of their final assessment. The students are designing a media product for a music company, Harmonica Music. They can either produce a magazine or website for music enthusiasts. They have to research ideas and then plan their product before creating this. Once this practise is completed, we will look at starting the preparation for the live brief. Good luck!
