Innovative Technology brings learning to life
We are incredibly proud that the school was selected to be part of a Clevertouch case study last month, looking at our innovative use of technology in school, particularly our new touchscreens. Year 2 and Year 4 pupils excelled during their filmed lessons showing their fantastic computing skills. It was a pleasure to showcase the film during parents’ evening alongside a presentation about how technology is being integrated across our curriculum.
One of the highlights of the filming was the opportunity to see a drone flying overhead to capture a bird’s eye view of our school in action! (See the picture below.) The film along with a Q&A with Mr Pridmore is currently available to view here.
MP Visits School
It was an extremely proud moment for us all to welcome Mr Edward Argar MP to Elizabeth Woodville on Friday 2nd December. As I’m sure you know Mr Argar MP had been asked by the Rt Hon Theresa May, Prime Minister to report back on the amazing ways our pupils are using technology in their curriculum. This all started from a wonderful letter by Alexia in Year 5 who wanted our Prime Minister to know all about our incredible technology. The full story appeared in the Leicester Mercury and made the front of the Groby Spotlight this month too. Well done Alexia!
Mr Argar thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to see our pupils’ demonstrating their technological skills in lessons across the curriculum. He was very impressed with the way our students could apply their thinking across the wide range of subjects which included reading, writing, maths, geography, history and art – as well as computing of course!
For the tour we were joined by Mr Randle (Chair of Governors), Mr Haylock (Vice Chair of Governors) and Mrs Chick (Treasurer of the PTA) as well as our pupil ambassadors, Alexia, Katie and James.
