Year 3 Exploring Simulations Lesson 2012 The ICT National Curriculum for ICT says that KS2 children should be taught "to use simulations and explore models in order to answer 'What if ... ?' questions, to investigate and evaluate the effect of changing values and to identify patterns and relationships [for example, simulation software, spreadsheet models]." Examples of their use within the classroom are numerous – music composition software, on-screen science experiments and on-screen interactive geography diagrams for instance – however it’s easy to overlook the need to actually teach children about their role in the real world and how to realise that they do have their limitations as well as their benefits. For these reasons I always like to spend some time with Year 3 ensuring that they fully appreciate what exactly simulations are, how to use them effectively and how to evaluate their usefulness (before they move on to designing their own spreadsheet models themselves in Excel in upper KS2).
