Year 8 – Lesson 6 – Project completion

Curriculum KS3 Unit Lesson

This is the final lesson of the unit and the focus will be on completing and evaluating the learners’ app projects. The lesson starts with an activity to remind the learners about problem-solving and debugging, followed by a short activity to help them plan the time that they have left in the lesson to complete their app. The learners will be given time to complete their apps before evaluating their success against their criteria and by answering a short set of questions. The last 15 minutes of the lesson will be used for the learners to take an individual assessment through a multiple-choice test.
