Lesson 5 Flowcharts

Curriculum > KS4 > Unit > Lesson

The focus of this lesson is for learners to interpret and create flowcharts. They use their knowledge of writing simple sequences and subroutines to follow a flowchart and write the code that it represents. They are also given time to write their own, simple flowcharts in order to practise using the symbols that they have learnt during the lesson. This is an introduction to flowchart design and this will be built upon throughout the unit.

Learning objectives

  • Identify flowchart symbols and describe how to use them (start, end, input, output, subroutine)
  • Translate a flowchart into a program sequence
  • Design a flowchart for a program
