This highly engaging series of 3 lessons can be run with no student computers so is suitable for lessons in a standard non-ICT classroom, in a computer suite or when pupils are self-isolating at home. Each lesson comes with a dyslexia-friendly PowerPoint presentation that includes all the instructions and takes the teacher and class through each lesson making this resource suitable for specialist and non-specialist teachers. The students have a workbook they fill in each lesson as they progress, extending their knowledge and helping you monitor their progress. An answer book is provided which can be used by the teacher or issued to students as a self-marking aid. This is a hands-on enjoyable series of three lessons that help pupils understand the hardware in a computer along with common software.  Written for KS3 this is suitable for years 7 to 9 and can even be used with GCSE groups if you wish. Equipment needed:  pupils should have access to a pair of scissors, a glue stick and a sheet of colourful A4 (or letter sized) paper along with a print-out of the 7-page template and 13-page workbook each (oh, and they will also need a pen).
