We have been experimenting with Sphero which is a digitally controlled robot. We connect it to the Chromebooks and can control it through programming it to change colour, make noises, drive in a certain direction and lots more! We used them as a part of our Children in Need day as well. All children LOVED them. We will be having lots more opportunities to use them in the near future. They are great fun and we will be giving parents the opportunity to see them on Parents’ Evening/Afternoon. Look out for our table near the front door!
Helping in P4
The Digital Leaders have been helping P4 login to the Chromebooks and use Education City to support their learning in Numeracy and Maths.
