We Are Meteorologists!

 

This unit brings together data measurement, analysis
and presentation, as the children take on the role of
meteorologists and weather presenters.

 

We will cover the following objective:

  • Work with variables and various forms of input and output.
  • Use logical reasoning to explain how some simple algorithms work.
  • Use search technologies effectively, appreciate how results are selected and ranked, and be discerning in evaluating digital content.
  • 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 and information.

 

As computer scientists we will:

  • Use search technologies effectively
  • Understand different measurement techniques for weather, both analogue and digital
  • Use computer-based data logging to automate the recording of some weather data
  • Be able to explain simple algorithms
  • Use spreadsheets to create charts
  • Analyse data, explore inconsistencies in data and make predictions
  • Practise using presentation software

  

In English we will write:

  • a speech
