GCSE – Object-oriented programming

Curriculum KS4 Unit


This unit will give students an insight into a different programming paradigm. It aims to take them from a rote understanding of programming concepts to a more nuanced understanding of the ways they can choose to write programs. Using a combination of relatable examples (animals, vehicles and books) and practical activities the students will gain an understanding of the concepts of objects and classes.
