This module aims to develop students’ programming skills by introducing repetition, using decomposition and using procedures. By learning sample programs and predict the outputs, students can build a repeat loop to draw shapes and patterns on screen.
The students’ plans should demonstrate how they have understood the objective and the intended structure of their program. This plan should be in the form of a flowchart. Students should create the design (e.g. a flower pattern) by creating a simple shape and rotating it. They should be able to write accurate instructions to create the basic shape and to duplicate it to form the pattern. For assessment, programs will be provided as a flowchart and will produce a simple shape. Students should make their prediction by working through the logic of the program.
Students' plan should be in the form of a flowchart and should demonstrate how they have used decomposition to break the complex shape or pattern into its composite parts. The intended structure for their program should include at least one procedure (in Scratch, procedures are ‘custom blocks’).
At the end of this course, student will take the ICT Starters Assessment of Next Steps Stage 2 Module 1 : Exploring Programming.
Cambridge Certification is available at TWO stages.
