OUR PROJECT

About us

Hello. We are Liff Primary School in Angus, Scotland.  We are a small school of around 100 pupils, with 5 classes and an attached nursery.  Children at Liff are keen and motivated learners with supportive parents.  The school strives to provide a happy, welcoming and inclusive environment for all.

What do we want?

We want to buy a range of equipment which will enable us to teach coding and computer science concepts to all ages.

Who is this for?

This is for our whole school from our youngest learners in Nursery to those children in P7.

Why do we want it?

We have invested in iPads over the past few years and have explored coding on iPads using Scratch Jnr and Scratch.

We have run a successful Code Club in the past and we are about to start this up again next year, with parental help.

We would now like to extend the range of resources that we have to teach coding and computer science, beyond the iPads, and introduce some exciting opportunities for children to explore coding concepts in a fun, hands on and practical way. 

We would also like our youngest learners to have access to coding technology, so are looking to buy a range of equipment to appeal to all ages.

We believe that having access to these resources will increase pupil engagement and help further equip children with vital digital skills for the future.
