Lesson 2 Adding and removing text

Curriculum > KS1 > Year 1 - Creating media – Digital writing

In this lesson, learners will continue to familiarise themselves with word processors and how they can interact with the computer using a keyboard. The learners will focus on adding text and will explore more of the keys found on a keyboard. Finally, they will begin to use the backspace button to remove text from the computer. Note: This lesson and subsequent lessons could be linked to a topic that the learners are currently learning about other curriculum areas. The ‘lost toy’ could be replaced with a character from their current topic of work.
