What pupils in key stage 1 now need to be taught
understand what algorithms are; how they are implemented
as programs on digital devices; and that programs execute
by following precise and unambiguous instructions
An algorithm is a set of instructions
designed to solve a problem or perform a
specific task. Computer programs use
algorithms to carry out different functions.

Do we have to start from scratch?
How does our current curriculum fit in?
use technology purposefully to
create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital
select, use and combine a variety of software (including
internet services) on a range of digital devices to design
and create a range of programs, systems and content
that accomplish given goals, including
collecting, analysing, evaluating and presenting data

What have I learned so far?
The key points
•Unpick new terminology and relate it to what you already know
•Step away from the computer if you need to - find practical ways
to teach new concepts
•Use resources that are already available to help you – there are
useful guides, videos etc just an internet search away
•Build on the great ICT you are already doing – you don’t need to
start from scratch
