Year 1

Lesson 3 Exploring the toolbar

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

In this lesson, learners will begin to explore the different tools that can be used in word processors to change the look of the text. Learners will use the Caps Lock key to add capital letters to their writing and will begin thinking about how to use this successfully. The learners will match simple descriptions with the key that they relate to. Finally, learners will begin exploring the different buttons available on the toolbar in more detail, and use these to change their own text.

Learning objectives

To identify that the look of text can be changed on a computer:

  • I can type capital letters
  • I can explain what the keys that I have learnt about already do
  • I can identify the toolbar and use bold, italic, and underline
