OUR PROJECT

About us

We are a middle sized school in Chorley, Lancashire.

What do we want?

We want to buy some BBC microbits.

Who is this for?

These are for the children in Key Stage 2.

Why do we want it?

We borrowed six BBC microbits on a short loan, to try out in Year 5 Coding Club and the children have really enjoyed using them to make their projects more exciting.

We'd like to buy a class set of 20 so that they can be used in all classes to enhance and promote computing with all the pupils.
