Computing L.O. :To create a simple branching database
A database is a computerised system that makes it easy to search, select and store information. Databases are used in many different places. You are going to be producing a branching database.
Load the template below and click play. Work through the whole branching database and see how the animals are sorted by the computer. As each question comes up, you will see the animals that fit the criteria are automatically sorted on the left of the screen.
What do all the questions have in common? They all have a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer.
On J2data, selecting ‘Branch’.
You are going to make your own branching database by choosing 6 animals to place in the box. You then have to write questions about the animals, with a yes or no answer, e.g. Does it have wings? Then drag the animals into the yes or no boxes. Keep going until all your animals are sorted.
You can create a database in advance mode, selecting more unusual animals from the internet and adding a name and description of each animal.
At a time where we all find ourselves indoors for the most of the day, we should bear in mind how important daily exercise is for our health and wellbeing, particularly our mental health. If you are able to, take your device somewhere with plenty of space (even the garden on a nice sunny day) or clear some space in front of your computer and follow along with Joe Wicks for a 30 minute workout. I will definitely be doing the same!
