Computing and IT
To further enhance teaching and learning across the curriculum, we have sets of iPads for each year group. These tablets provide learning opportunities that would not ordinarily be possible. All curriculum areas benefit from the provision of our iPads. Apps are carefully selected and downloaded to best help children move forward in different subjects areas. Children can learn from educational applications or can even record their own explanations for other children to learn from.
Fairlawn’s digital leaders is a dedicated team of Year 5 and 6 students who are passionate about all things IT. The team is available to support teachers and children during IT and computing lessons, offering up their fantastic knowledge. They are experts in online safety and are the first point of call for any child who has a question or concern about anything they have seen online. During an after school club, they get to try out new and exciting gadgets and programmes, demonstrating this to staff who will be teaching this unit in the future. They are a great help to the school!
