Smoke signals are one way of sending messages but emails are more common today.

Computer Software and Programs

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 some common computer software and programs. It is one of 20 quizzes to help you find out about how computers work, and how they affect all our lives.

Computers are now common to us all and there are lots of things you can do with one. Emails, Skype, games - all of these use software or programs. One piece of software will help you to write stories. Another will let you draw pictures. You can find things out with one and do sums with another. Another common use of computers is to keep in touch with our friends. This quiz is all about using computer programs.
