Computing and IT Year 8

Aims:
In year 8 we aim to build on year 7 work and introduce the student to additional software.  We aim to increase the level of demand in the units of work and to complete some complicated database and spreadsheet tasks.

Student decision making and evaluations play an important role in year 8 units.

Content:
The year 8 Computing and IT curriculum is unit based and mainly covers levels 4 to 6.  Students have 1 lesson of Computing and IT per week.

The units covered are:

  • SCRATCH - Games design
  • Flash (school banner)
  • Web design (Fan club)
  • Visitors (Database and spreadsheet tasks)

Assessment:
Homework is set regularly.
Each unit is assessed and awarded a level plus sublevel.
