Free Computational Thinking Posters for Schools
Computational Thinking is a key component of the UK national computing curriculum for KS1 and KS2 students. Our computational thinking examples use real-life scenarios that are simple to understand. And easy to remember.
What is Computational Thinking?
Computational thinking allows us to take a complex problem, understand what the problem is and develop possible solutions. It is an important skill for children to learn as it enables real-world problem solving and is essential for coding.
There are four key components to computational thinking:
- Decomposition – breaking down a complex problem into smaller, more manageable parts.
- Pattern recognition – looking for similarities among and within problems.
- Abstraction – focusing on the important information only, ignoring irrelevant detail.
- Algorithms – developing or following step-by-step instructions to solve a problem.
