Our focus on ICT over the previous few years has seen massive investment in modern iPads in both KS1 and KS2, A suite of chrome books, a number of 65" digital displays for effective demonstrations, as well as the more usual Windows and Mac computers. We're mindful in all lessons to focus on the Welsh Digital Competency Framework to allow students to use technology in the most effective way for their topic.
Paige is a year 2 pupil who had never used stop motion before. This short video and narration were completed in around 45 minutes of her being taught the basic principles.
In addition we have a weekly visit from Alan Downes from Rough Cuts who is a Qualified Apple Teacher, Certified Google Educator and Microsoft Innovation Expert. Mr Downes spends a term each year with every class in the school delivering bespoke lessons in partnership with the teachers, increasing knowledge and improving adoption of new technology.
Mr Downes also runs our after school club, which is very popular, especially when it's coding or Minecraft!
