EdExcel GCSE Pseudo-code

My daughter has her GCSE in the EdExcel variant of Computer Science in a month.  It’s far from the best pseudo code variant and there’s little in terms of online resources, tutorials or similar.  So, we came up with what you see below to help. Time permitting, I’ll improve this further. Perhaps it will help others teaching, training or revising.
