Computing 

LO: To give instructions to a computer (algorithm)

 

Hi Butterflies,

 

During this term we will be practicing using our mouse to follow and give instructions. I would like you to take your time and try your best. It is not about completing the activity but having the opportunity to practice using your mouse. (so adults please let your children practice, if they need help then instruct them what to do, do not do it for them)  

 

Outcomes at the end of this term;

1. Children to independently use a computer mouse to give and follow instructions. 

2. Children to independently use a computer mouse to navigate the internet.

3. Children to independently use a computer mouse and keyboard to login. 

                                                      

Although these tasks are to be complete by your children please take all precautions to be safe online. Sit with your child while using the internet and explain the importance of online safety. 

 

 

Allow your children (with your support) to complete these steps as they need to continue to practice using the mouse and keyboard.
