Summer 1 – Communication
Digital technology allows people to communicate and share their ideas, and this is the focus of the communication strand. It ensures that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world. The children email other schools, sharing ideas and collaborating on projects. They author online blogs and create printed books for different audiences.
Summer 2 – Presenting Data
Children learn how to collect, interpret and present data. Creating online surveys, collecting meteorological data, presenting a weather forecast, designing a 3D art gallery to display their artwork and become travel writers and charting their real-life adventures.
