Exam board used for GCSE

Link to the specification from the exam board

  ICT is all about applying technology to everyday life. Pupils will learn how   to use computers to help personal and work related challenges.

 

Computing focusses on how computers work. Pupils will learn about the hardware, programming and how computers thing.

 

E-safety - Pupils will learn some of the dangers of the internet and how to stay safe.

Game Making - Pupils create their own game using Scratch.

Spreadsheets -  Pupils will be introduced to spreadsheets and use them to help manage a business.

Encryption - Pupils will learn how data is encrypted and why.

  Web design- Pupils will create an e-portfolio and also learn about HTML     code.

  App Design- Pupils will create an app using appshed

  Graphics- Pupils will create original images using Photoshop, and Google   Sketchup

  Networking

Databases- Pupils will build and interrogate databases to resolve real life issues.

 

 

Python- Pupil will learn how to program in Python. This a basic       introduction which will introduce elementary functions and problem solving skills.

 

Introduction to Key Stage 4- Pupils will complete a range of Key Stage 4 activities in order to give them an understanding of what they may be doing next year. They will complete both academic and vocation activities taken from key stage 4 courses.

Unit 3: Artwork and Imaging- Controlled Assessment (Coninued)

 

Images of one sort or another are all around us, often influencing what we do and how we think. They are used to communicate messages in many different contexts including advertising, music, fashion, interior design, computer games and architecture. We see them everywhere – as we work or study, out shopping or on holiday.

 

This unit aims to give you the skills to use the tools and techniques provided by artwork and imaging software to design and create effective graphic products for specified purposes and audiences. You will investigate a range of graphic products to find out how images are used to convey a particular message. You will discover that you like some of these products more than others and you will need to consider why this is the case.

 

Unit 1 Developing Web Products- Exam(Resit, if necessary)

 

When your attention is captured by a web page advertising a competition, promoting an event or launching a new product, what makes you stop and look? Don’t be fooled by technical wizardry. It may have spectacular images, eye-catching animation or attention grabbing text, but what makes it effective is the way the components work together.

 

This unit aims to give you the knowledge and skills you need to produce attention grabbing web products using web authoring software, multimedia assets and navigation features. You will demonstrate your ability to design, build and test a web product in a practical computer-based examination set by Pearson.

 

GCSE Computer Science

OCR will issue three assessment tasks at the start of the terminal academic year of assessment. Only tasks designated for that examination series can be submitted unless carrying forward marks from a previous year. The tasks will provide opportunities for the learners to demonstrate their practical ability in the skills outlined in the specification.

 

Learners will need to create suitable algorithms which will provide a solution to the problems identified in the task. They will then code their solutions in a suitable programming language. The solutions must be tested at each stage to ensure they solve the stated problem and learners must use a suitable test plan with appropriate test data

 

The code must be suitably annotated to describe the process. Test results should be annotated to show how these relate to the code, the test plan and the original problem.

 

Learners will need to provide an evaluation of their solution based on the test evidence.

GCSE Computer Science

 

Computer Systems- Exam

 

This component will introduce learners to the Central Processing Unit (CPU), computer memory and storage, wired and wireless networks, network topologies, system security and system software. It is expected that learners will become familiar with the impact of Computer Science in a global context through the study of the ethical, legal, cultural and environmental concerns associated with Computer Science. It is expected that learners will draw on this underpinning content when completing the Programming Project component

 

Computational thinking, algorithms and programming- Exam

 

This component incorporates and builds on the knowledge and understanding gained in Component 01, encouraging learners to apply this knowledge and understanding using computational thinking. Learners will be introduced to algorithms and programming, learning about programming techniques, how to produce robust programs, computational logic, translators and facilities of computing languages and data representation. Learners will become familiar with computing related mathematics. It is expected that learners will draw on this underpinning content when completing the Programming Project component
