J277 Revision Mats/Knowledge Organisers

(0)
Recently remade specifically for J277! I have created revision mats/knowledge organisers for all topics in the OCR Computer Science GCSE (J277). I have found them particularly handy as homework for a topic or as a recap when finished the delivery of a topic. These are designed using the ‘OpenDyslexic’ font, this can be seen on the PDF’s. Formatting may differ on the publisher document if you do not have the font installed. This pack consists of the original publisher file as well as a PDF of all the mats too. Enjoy!

OCR NEA J276/J277 Programming Practise - Three Tasks - Differentiated

(0)
In this pack is a presentation that talks the students through a set of programming projects designed to get the students used to the NEA they will be completing in Spetember of their second year on the course. There are three differentiated task; Hangman, Recipes and Password Checker. Whilst i have made a suggestion to their difficulty (Based off my own students and the skills used to solve the problem) each task can be extended easily to include CSV manipulation, Defensive Design and Error Handling ( I used this to extend the task with my Y10’s). Each task comes with a project specification the students can use to create their success criteria. The PowerPoint gives hints on how to complete each section of the students programming project template., from; Analysis, Design, Development, Testing and Evaluation. I have provided flowchart solutions for each task, which can be used to scaffold for low ability students, getting them to complete Pseudocode and their code for the task. The recipes task can easily be extended to use CSV or Text files as well as using sub routines for each recipe. The PowerPoint is made with the ‘OpenDyslexic’ font with Dyslexic students in mind. All the solutions for each of the tasks have been added, The solutions are using high ability skills, defensive programming (In the j276 spec). This is so you can differentiate down if needed. I have also provided an expected output for each program, this is something you can show students in the early phase as I feel seeing a physical outcome of a program makes it easier for them to understand how to create a solution. Enjoy the independent work with your students, Please comment and let me know your feedback!

OCR J277 - Computer Science GCSE - Revision Cards

(2)
Recently remade for J277! I have created revision cards for all topics in the OCR Computer Science GCSE (J277). These are used by my current Year 11 Cohort, they have found them quite effective as support tools in lessons and revision at home. I allow students to use them whilst answering question in lesson so that they are focusing on exam techniques whilst absorbing the subject knowledge too. I have created a revision wall by printing each card in A3 and arranging it on the wall. Students can consult the wall if they are stuck. All the cards have been designed to be printed double sided on the short edge, This is so that the topic name is on the back. All cards are using the ‘OpenDyslexic’ font, this can be seen on the PDF’s. Formatting may differ on the publisher document if you do not have the font installed. This pack consists of the original publisher file as well as a PDF of all the cards too. I have also created a PDF of each set of cards that represent each separate paper of the OCR course. Enjoy! UPDATE# I have added the Pseudocode Programming Techniques page, to match up with the Question Cards

OCR J277 Recap Grids 400+ Questions

(0)
I have created Recap Grids for all topics in the OCR Computer Science GCSE (J277). These were used by my Year 11 Cohort, they have found them quite effective as recap starters at the beginning of lessons and revision at home. They work great for testing students knowledge after delivering a topic as well . All the Recap have been designed to be displayed on an interactive whiteboard or on a mobile phone/tablet. All cards are using the ‘OpenDyslexic’ font. Formatting may differ on the the PowerPoint if you do not have the font installed. This pack consists of the original PowerPoint file with Macros programmed to ease the users navigation of the content. Enjoy!

OCR J277 - Revision Question Cards - Computer Science GCSE

(0)
Recently remade for J277! I have created question cards for all topics in the OCR Computer Science GCSE (J277). These were used by my Year 11 Cohort, they have found them quite effective as support tools in lessons and revision at home. They work great for testing students knowledge after delivering a topic as well as extending questioning individually in lessons. I have created wall display that has each Topic Easy, Medium and Hard. This allows students to collect a question card to further their learning whenever they want too. I have used Blooms style questioning allowing for the testing of knowledge, application of knowledge and then applying it further. I have named these ‘Attained it…’, ‘Applied it…’ and ‘Advanced it…’ respectively. All the cards have been designed to be printed double sided on the short edge, This is so that the topic name is on the back. All cards are using the ‘OpenDyslexic’ font, this can be seen on the PDF’s. Formatting may differ on the publisher document if you do not have the font installed. This pack consists of the original publisher file’s as well as PDFs of all the cards too. I have also created a PDF of each set of cards that represent each separate paper of the OCR course, as well as one for all topics across the course. The content does not differ from the collective one to the individual in any way. Enjoy!
Programming Challenges 65 - J277 - Random Challenge Generator and Board Game

Programming Challenges 65 - J277 - Random Challenge Generator and Board Game

(4)
I have created a PowerPoint with 65 different programming challenges that are ordered by difficulty. On each slide I have a meter that shows how difficult the question is and what skills are required to solve the problem. The Powerpoint can be used in one of two ways: Firstly the PowerPoint can be used as a means of delivering programming challenges to students based on skills and difficulty. Using the Random Challenge Generator page you can pick whether you give the students or student an Easy, Medium or Hard challenge. I have found this particularly useful for differentiation in a mixed ability class when practising programming. The Second use is the game board. Using this slide the students can progress through 18 fixed challenges that are designed to take the students from very basic skill to getting them onto larger programming challenges( This will encompass more that enough time required for OCR J277) . The PowerPoint is designed in ‘OpenDyslexic’ Font so install this if there is an issue with formatting. I will later add solutions for all challenges. I will later update the PowerPoint to add the functionality for students to check their answers. Enjoy!

J276/J277 Python and Programming Help Sheets

(3)
All the help sheets below were created inline with the specification for OCR J276 ‘Computational thinking, algorithms and programming’ and ‘Programming Project’ sections of the course. I created these for my own Year 10 students and they have found them very useful, when introducing sections of Python programming theory, Flowcharts and Pseudocode. I use these in lessons to drive independence and as a reference for the pupils whilst programming so they are not constantly looking things up on the internet. They find the sheet with the topic on and the key information is there. In my classroom I have arranged a display using folders to hold the sheets so the students can walk up and grab the sheet that best suits their needs at the time. Hope they help!
