September – October (Half Term 1)
It’s a good idea to start with the Data Representation lessons for theory. The most important topics in year 1 will be binary, hexadecimal, and images.
In October, you’ll want to work through the more advanced sections on adding & shifting binary numbers alongside the calculating bitmap image size questions this month.
Programming requires regular practice, so although there are only a few lessons for the techniques we’ll regularly cover this in live lessons. Start off with the Sequence & Selection lessons this half term.
In October, our live lessons will be looking at different types of algorithm. Make sure that you have covered the “Problem Solving” and “Pseudocode & Flowcharts” lessons this month.
Your first Tutor Marked Assessment is due at the end of October. This is all about Data Representation Topics.
