Use of technology

All children in school will have access to ‘Ed Shed’ , ‘Numbots’ and ‘TT rockstars’ and will learn to use this software independently. They will also have their own log in for use at home. In school they will develop their skills using a variety of programs and apps on tablets and they will become familiar using laptops.
