Year 3 – Computer Systems and Networks

The children in Year 3 have been looking at digital devices. We have discussed how digital devices need an input, process and output to work. The children invented their own machines, considering how it would have an input, process and output to work. During the next few sessions we looked at what connections and a network needed to work. We drew our family network and discussed the connections in this.

Year 3 then explored how a network works and what makes a good, efficient network. We passed messages and files around our made classroom network. We discovered how important it is to have a switch working in the network for the best efficiency. Then we went on a journey around school finding the componenets on our actual school network.
