This half term, Year 6 are learning about spreadsheets in computing. Firstly, the children were introduced to data, the different types and how it can be organised within a spreadsheet. Following this, the children looked at a spreadsheet showing sales of electronic items. From this spreadsheet, questions were created that could be answered using the spreadsheet. The children were then given the task of creating their own spreadsheet based on travel to different attractions in the UK. Google maps was used to find out how far the attractions were from school and how long it would take to get to them. Formulae was introduced and the children used the cell names to calculate the cost of petrol to get there and back. The children loved using the spreadsheet to calculate and produced useful and accurate spreadsheets.
