Year 3 - Digital Learning Log

Lesson 1 - E-Safety - KQ: How can we keep a network safe?

The children were looking into how a network works, risks and other aspects that need to be put in place to help keep it secure. Identified right and wrong choices when using a network.

Lesson 2 - KQ: How does a digital device work?

This lesson introduces the concepts of input, process, and output. These concepts are fundamental to all digital devices.

Lesson 3 - KQ: What parts make up a digital device?

Learners will develop their knowledge of the relationship between inputs, processes, and outputs and apply it to devices and parts of devices that they will be familiar with from their everyday surroundings.

Lesson 4 - KQ: How do digital devices help us?

Learners will apply their learning from Lessons 1 and 2 by using programs in conjunction with inputs and outputs on a digital device. They will create two pieces of work with the same focus, using digital devices to create one piece of work, and non-digital tools to create the other. Learners will then compare and contrast the two approaches.

Lesson 5 - KQ: How am I connected?


This lesson introduces the concept of connections and moving information between connected devices. Learners will learn to explain how and why computers are joined together to form networks. 

Lesson 6 - KQ: How are computers connected?

This lesson introduces key network components, including a server and wireless access points. Learners will examine each device’s functionality and look at the benefits of networking computers.

Autumn 1 - Branching databases

Lesson 1 - E-Safety Key Question: Why should we think before we share?

In this lesson, children identified information that should and shouldn’t be shared. The children shared some of their experiences and thought about how to help others. They then used Purple Mash to create an informative poster describing what should and should not be posted online.

Lesson 2 - Key Question: Why do we use yes/no questions?

Learners will start to explore questions with yes/no answers, and how these can be used to identify and compare objects. They will create their own yes/no questions, before using these to split a collection of objects into groups.

Lesson 3 Key Question: Why do we collect data?

Learners will develop their understanding of using questions with yes/no answers to group objects more than once. They will learn how to arrange objects into a tree structure and will continue to think about which attributes the questions are related to.

Lesson 4 Key question: What is a branching database?

Learners will continue to develop their understanding of ordering objects/images in a branching database structure. They will learn how to use an online database tool to arrange objects into a branching database, and will create their own questions with yes/no answers. Learners will show that their branching database works through testing
