    Hooray1: Small Basic gets a well-deserved mention

    Hooray2: Excellent mapping of resources to requirements

    Boo1: "Programmes Used" should surely be "Programs Used" ?!

    Boo2: Small Basic is very appropriate for KS4 too, (we've just done Controlled Assessments!)

    Boo3: ANY text-based programming below KS3 is, IMHO, far too soon. There are SO many better alternatives for the majority of kids of that age and of that immature intellectual development.
