OUR PROJECT

About us

Cassiobury Infants is a vibrant three form entry school full of enthusiastic children willing to learn. Our goal is to develop a broad and balanced curriculum to enable the children to be the very best they can be on their journey through life. We hope to fill our school with thought-provoking activities which enable children to become forward thinkers.

What do we want?

We would like to purchase a set of tablets for each class for use by teachers and children to record the learning and activities that are happening. We have recently set up Twitter pages for each class, and having the tablet would facilitate uploading photos to Twitter.   

Who is this for?

This is for each class, to use across a range of subjects.

Why do we want it?

Each class having a tablet would allow teachers to record activities in a different way, as children could be recorded giving explanations during lessons such as English, Maths or Science, or giving feedback on activities.
