Work at Home Activities
In ICT and Computing we are keen to prepare our students for their time after Clare Mount and so our curriculum reflects this throughout Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4
In Key Stage 3 we are teaching all of the skills in order to prepare the students for their qualifications in Key Stage 4 ICT. The students will make Logos, Spreadsheets, Presentations and create a game using Scratch before making a Multimedia Product as preparation for KS4 BTEC .
All of the skills will prepare our students for their Key Stage 4 studies. All students in Year 10 and 11 will study to achieve at least a Level 1 qualification in the BTEC Technical Digital Information Technology qualification, a recognised qualification equivalent to GCSE, whilst those who choose the option lesson will study this at a more advanced level in the hope of achieving a Level 2 qualification. Throughout the year we work on standalone projects in relation to cross curricular studies including Maths, English and Science and also study E-safety every year during Safer Internet week.
Also please find attached a link to various ICT topics through Teach-ICT games. The students think they are playing but it is a fun way to learn the many aspects of ICT and Computing
