Today our digital leaders worked together with East Hunsbury’s digital leaders to master the use of Minecraft on the Microsoft Surface devices. They learnt to move around, explore, dig and build within the safety of different Minecraft worlds.
What a wonderful opportunity for the children to work together today! The seven academy schools were given a great opportunity to create a vision of digital leadership in each of their schools. They were creative in using a number of tools from the Office365 application (Teams, Sway and Forms), supporting each other to develop their skills and working collaboratively to share what they had learnt.
Class teachers are currently looking at all your brilliant applications to be a digital leader and those that have been selected will find out in the next few days.
I would like to thank all of you who have applied and hope you will continue to support you class teacher and all the members of your class.
A big thank you from Mr Whitfield, Mrs Holmes, Mrs Timmis and all the teachers.

Please feel free to look through the assembly PowerPoint and watch the Youtube
Our new group of digital leaders have been trailing a new programme called Rainforest Coding. Furthermore, they have been supporting the younger children to access the programme with the purpose of asking their views on its benefits and how we can use this to learn how to code. We have asked for feed back through the blog. Have a look at the responses.
