Year 7

In Year 7 students use a range of programs to explore Computers. They also begin to learn how to share their ideas electronically and how to help each other improve their work.
They begin with digital painting, learning how to create specific shapes, image effects and compositions and how to save and retrieve their work. They move on to PowerPoint sequences where they develop searching, formatting and organisational skills.
They develop their ability to organise data further by creating spread sheet tables. Students are first introduced to programming in Y7 where they attempt simple sequences and on-screen movement. They finish by creating 2D and stop motion animations.
