(*planning link: unit 1.2 treasure hunters)
Daisy Dino (ipad app)
-discuss/ explore what will happen when instructions
are given in a sequence.

pictogram is
showing them.

program
(pictogram)

or simple tables.
Unit 1.3- we are story
tellers

book

followed by humans and computers
-computers need more precise instructions than
computers
Online
Websites
-talk about
websites they
have been on
-explore a website
by clicking on
buttons, arrows,
menus and
hyperlinks

by clicking on the
‘back’ button

supervision of
adults
E-safety
-make decisions
about whether or
not statements or
images found on
the internet are
likely to be true.

devices that can
go on the internet,
and separate those
that do not.

-a computer program is like the narrative part of a
story, and the computer’s job is to do what the narrator
says. Computers have no intelligence and so follow the
narrator’s instructions blindly.
