KS3 Python Programming Complete SoW

This bundle includes 12 lessons making a complete unit of work that teaches pupils how to program in Python and also includes two end of unit tests to assess their programming skills. The National Curriculum for England specifies that by the end of Key stage 3 pupils should have been taught to “use two or more programming languages, at least one of which is textual, to solve a variety of computational problems; make appropriate use of data structures (for example, lists, tables or arrays); design and develop modular programs that use procedures or functions (for example, sub programs).” (National curriculum in England: computing programmes of study - key stages 3 and 4:)

This complete unit of work teaches pupils how to programming in Python and takes them through the basics to using data structures and sub programs. Each lesson includes an attractive PowerPoint presentation and include videos to teach the key skills and loads of Python programming practice and questions. The teacher’s lesson plans include differentiated objectives and all the answers to the programming problems making this series of lessons ideal for specialist and non-specialist teachers.

Lesson 1 – Computational thinking escape room
Lesson 2 – Input and output
Lesson 3 – If statements
Lesson 4 – More if statements
Lesson 5 – Going loopy
Lesson 6 – Text and numbers
