We have LearnPads throughout the school and the children have been using them to support and extend their learning. We currently share our LearnPads across each year group and also have larger Folio LearnPads that can be used for group work. We believe that children should be able to use a range of technology throughout the curriculum and that they should be an integral part of everyday learning.
We also have iPads in school and use the PocketPhonics apps to support our phonics teaching in Key Stage 1. The app provides opportunities for children to read, hear and write the sounds. Once the children have secured their sounds, they can apply them when reading PocketPhonic Stories. There are many benefits to this app, including: monitoring individual children’s progress and ensuring that they are confident with each sound before they can move onto learning the next one.
