Hi children,

This week I've been creating a quiz for you to see if you have been listening in your computing lessons this year! Have a go, and if there's something you're not sure of, why not look it up to learn more about it? You'll find the answers at the bottom, but do have a go before you check the answers. Most of all, have fun!
