Year 4 – Computing systems and networks – The Internet

Curriculum KS2 Unit


Learners will apply their knowledge and understanding of networks, to appreciate the internet as a network of networks which need to be kept secure. They will learn that the World Wide Web is part of the internet, and will be given opportunities to explore the World Wide Web for themselves in order to learn about who owns content and what they can access, add, and create. Finally, they will evaluate online content to decide how honest, accurate, or reliable it is, and understand the consequences of false information.

This unit requires devices with an internet connection. Chrome Music Lab is used in one lesson to demonstrate content which can be produced on the World Wide Web.
