Teaching Spreadsheets - A guide to introducing Spreadsheets to Primary Students

Understanding Spreadsheets is often an area of the curriculum that is missed. I would like to offer some ideas on how Spreadsheets can be taught in school from Year 3 to Year 6. I have worked with many secondary schools and observed many teachers and all to often I see that older secondary students don't know how to use spreadsheets. These are tools that most professions use in some capacity, so embedding this understanding at the Primary School level is essential, as many secondary schools make the assumption that these skills have been covered.
