Nursery and Reception have regular access to iPads, using a range of educational apps to enhance their learning.
In Year 1 and Year 2, the pupils use laptops and iPads. They quickly become familiar with their operation and capabilities. Pupils are encouraged to develop their ICT skills across the curriculum. They will also have the opportunity to use a range of apps and software packages including the full Office suite and online apps like Book Creator. The skills they will learn will prepare them for their 1:1 devices which they will receive in Year 3. The children enjoy using technology. In school, we want the children to be innovators and creative, using their problem-solving skills to produce work.
In KS2, every child receives a 1:1 device which they keep and take home. Technology becomes embedded in the classroom, the children enhance their learning by using EdTech platforms such as Learning by Questions and Century Tech. These tools enhance teaching and learning and enable the children to take ownership of their learning.
Alongside these platforms, the children will have plenty of opportunities to be innovators, creating documents, presentations and videos. The children have opportunities to work collaboratively with their teacher and peers using Teams, OneNote and Whiteboard apps amongst others. The children can stay in touch with each other through Teams and this is great for their wellbeing.
The 1:1 devices have given the children a huge advantage with their education, they have everything they need at their fingertips and these devices will provide them with key skills that they will take with them as they move through school and into further education.
