Heronsgate welcomes visitors from Sweden

On Friday 26th January 2018, we welcomed 30 Swedish teachers and school leaders go come and see what we are doing with educational technology at Heronsgate Primary School. After a brief presentation about our journey with technology so far, educators were then given guided tours around the school and were able to see the different ways that children use iPads and other technology to help with their learning every day. Children were drawing characters from The Three Little Pigs on iPads in Nursery, exploring volcanoes in Reception using ‘The Earth’ app, developing their own maths problems in Year 1 with the ‘Number Pieces’ app, filming weather forecasts in Year 2, programming LEGO robots in Year 3, recording and then writing down reported speech in Year 4, publishing a newspaper report using ‘Pages’ in Year 5 and using annotation tools on iPad to edit and improve their work in Year 6. It was a fantastic time!
