Information Storage

This quiz addresses part of the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 for children aged 5 and 6 in years 1 and 2 in Computing. Specifically it looks at storing information, bits and bytes, storage devices and the need to save information. It is one of 20 quizzes to help you find out about how computers work, and how they affect all our lives.

A library stores lots of information. A lot of it is stored in books. Computers can store lots and lots of information. They can store words, numbers, pictures, videos and sounds. If information is not stored, it is lost. Computers store information in special code. Tiny pieces of code are called bits. Rather bigger pieces of code are called bytes. Usually, there are 8 bits in a byte. The information is stored in storage devices.
