Class 3's Topic Page

Summer Term - Topic 3


Our new topic is...


Sequencing Sound





We will be covering the following National Curriculum Computing objectives:

  • Design, write, and debug programs that accomplish specific goals, including controlling or simulating physical systems; solve problems by decomposing them into smaller parts.
  • Use sequence, selection, and repetition in programs; work with variables and various forms of input and output
  • Use logical reasoning to explain how some simple algorithms work, and to detect and correct errors in algorithms and programs
  • 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

This unit explores the concept of sequencing in programming through Scratch. It begins with an introduction to the programming environment, which will be new to most learners. They will be introduced to a selection of motion, sound, and event blocks which they will use to create their own programs, featuring sequences. The final project is to make a representation of a piano. The unit is paced to focus on all aspects of sequences, and make sure that knowledge is built in a structured manner. Learners also apply stages of program design through this unit.



This term our writing will be based on the book 'Fox' by by Margaret Wild and Ron Brooks.

We will be writing a fable narrative and an information report. 




This half term we will be covering fractions and money.
