Tech Week 2021

We marked ‘Tech Week’ from Monday 19th of April to Friday 23rd of April this year.  We are presently working towards the Discover Primary Science Plaque of STEM Excellence which is awarded to schools in recognition of their extensive work in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.  

There were many technology-related activities throughout each class during the week.

IPADS

Our school is very lucky to be in a position to have a set of 30 IPads. Each class had their usual IPad class during the week, where pupils engaged with many educational applications to help with numeracy, literacy, and other areas throughout the curriculum. 

Some Tech Week Activities from around the school

5th Class were busy coding during the week creating their own “Dance Party using code.org. This proved a great hit with all pupils.

3rd Class planned, designed, and executed their experiment to move a range of model vehicles using battery power fans. Well done 3rd Class!

2nd Class designed their own Pet Apps, there were some amazing design suggestions from these budding app developers. Also, they completed some problem solving and literacy-based activities using Ipads. 

Check out the pictures below, more will follow very soon.
