Year 8 – Inside a Computer

Year 8 have been working on a Computing related unit of work for the last 5 weeks.  Students have been able to identify the main components in a computer and have learnt to control a Computer through the command line interface.  Students have been using Raspberry Pi’s to learn the basics of controlling a Linux operating system as well as learning how to maintain a Windows computer.

Year 8 Computer Science – Unit 3 – Inside a Computer

Students in year 8 are currently studying a unit of work called ‘Inside a Computer’.  Students are learning about the main components that enable a computer to function and what parts are required to build a computer.  This unit of work is new to Charter International School, students have coped extremely well with new computing related topics that have been introduced.  The aim of this unit is for students to be able to control a computer through the Command Line and be able to maintain a computer if and when it goes wrong/needs upgrading.  Students will be working with Raspberry Pi’s after their end of term exams and be taught how to control a device through the Command Line.
