Essential programming skills to learn

Below is a list of programming skills we aim to mostly cover between years 7 and 11 in computing and computer science. If you feel you are ahead, or behind, take a look through the list and practise the skills yourself. There are many resources online, especially on YouTube, that explain how to use python and provide ideas for projects and tasks.

These skills can be achieved by programming a console application (like in repl.it or Hartismere Python).
