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.
