Looking for an engaging way to introduce your students to computational thinking? Look no further than our "Introduction to Computational Thinking" unit!


This 6-lesson scheme of work uses everyday examples and practical, hands-on challenges to bring the theory of computational thinking to life. While the unit does refer to Scratch and Python as examples, your pupils do not require any prior programming knowledge in these languages.


Our "Introduction to Computational Thinking" unit teaches your students essential skills such as decomposition, pattern recognition, abstraction, algorithms, creating flow charts (including using selection and iteration), and pseudocode (including INPUT, OUTPUT, IF…THEN, IF…THEN…ELSE, IF…THEN…ELSEIF…ELSE statements, FOR, WHILE and REPEAT UNTIL loops).


What is included?

With ready-to-use PowerPoint presentations, teacher's notes (including answers), and all necessary worksheets, files and homework tasks, our "Introduction to Computational Thinking" unit will save you hours of planning time and allow you to deliver engaging and informative lessons with ease.


Perfect for an early career teacher (ECT), non-specialist teacher or experienced computing teacher looking to add a sprinkle of zesty brilliance to their lessons. Our "Introduction to Computational Thinking" unit is an ideal way to help your students develop essential digital literacy skills.


So why wait? Invest in your students' education and order our "Introduction to Computational Thinking" unit today – your students (and your workload) will thank you!


This unit teaches pupils:

  • Decomposition
  • Pattern Recognition
  • Abstraction
  • Algorithms
  • Creating flow charts including using selection and iteration
  • Pseudocode including INPUT, OUTPUT, IF…THEN, IF…THEN…ELSE, IF…THEN…ELSEIF…ELSE statements, FOR, WHILE and REPEAT UNTIL loops


Please note: This unit does not include specific algorithms for sorting and searching as these are covered in the GCSE Fundamentals of Algorithms student workbooks for OCR or AQA.  We do also have a Sorting Algorithms Escape Room lesson which is sold seperatly.
