Word Processing

Word processing programs are an integral part of life today. In KS2 ICT children will become familiar with using computer programs such as 'word' to produce text and images.

Word processing means using a computer to produce text. Word processing programs are incredibly useful. Not only can they be used to produce text - for example to write letters or stories - they can also include images. You have most probably been using them in school to write reports or to create newspapers, advertisements or leaflets. Being able to use word processing programs well is a really important skill which you will use often in your adult life.

See how much you know about these useful programs by trying this ICT quiz - but watch out: if you make a mistake, there's no 'Undo' button!

  1. Choosing 'landscape' for your page layout will do what to it?
    A portrait page layout will make a paper's height greater than its width
  2. Which key would you press if you wanted to type only in CAPITAL letters?
    It is difficult to read text that is typed using only capital letters. If you find that capital letters are appearing when you type, then pressing the Caps Lock key will allow you to type in lower case
  3. Highlighted text can be manipulated (changed) in which of the following ways?
    It can also be highlighted, underlined or put into bold or italic letters
  4. If you wish to move some text to another place in your document, what can you do?
    If you wanted to write the same words more then once you could use 'Copy' and 'Paste' rather than 'Cut' and 'Paste'. This would leave the first set of words in your document
  5. Using 'click and drag' with a photo or picture, what can you change?
    If you click on the top or side of a picture before dragging, you will change its proportions - to keep proportions the same, click on the corner of the image before dragging
  6. Which button on the toolbar would you use to italicise a word?
    You can also italicise by highlighting the text, using right click, and then using left click to select the Italics button
  7. The font 'Jokerman' would be most suitable for which of these documents?
    The other three documents are about serious subjects so would need a more formal font
  8. If you wanted to use one capital letter (e.g. at the beginning of your name) you would press two keys at the same time: the letter you need and which other key?
    The shift key is sometimes marked with an arrow pointing up, rather than with the word 'shift'. There are two shift keys so you can easily reach them with your left or right hand
  9. To decorate the edges of a word document, you would add which of the following?
    To add a border click the 'Page Layout' tab. Then select the 'Page Borders' button. This is usually in the 'Page Background' menu on the toolbar but is sometimes found under 'Margins'
  10. What does a word processing package allow you to add and manipulate (change)?
    You can add several different types of image, such as photos, drawings, shapes, clip art and graphs. You can also add hyperlinks to word documents
