We are a primary school in North Wales and we pride ourselves on providing a welcoming, vibrant and inclusive environment where children have the freedom to flourish. We aim to nurture every pupil, celebrate their achievements big and small, and offer an engaging curriculum which embraces new initiatives and technology to help them develop a positive attitude towards learning and school life.What we want
We would like to buy a set of 12 Sphero SPRK+ - http://www.sphero.com/sprk-plusWho is this for?
This is for our whole school community. The Sphero Edu app will enable us to use Sphero with our youngest pupils in Nursery and be able to differentiate the activities to challenge even our most able and talented pupils in Year Six. The Sphero is so versatile that it can be used to develop skills across a variety of curriculum subjects.Why we want it?
In Welsh education, the development of digital skills are seen as fundamental as literacy and numeracy skills. Furthermore, coding is becoming one of the most in-demand skills across industries in the world of work. Learning to code with the Sphero will equip our pupils with the skills they need to be 21st century learners. We want to inspire our pupils to be curious, problem solvers, creative, and innovative learners.
Once the teachers and pupils have grasped the basics of using the Sphero we would love to invite the parents in for a 'Coding and a Cuppa' workshop. This will enable the children to teach their parents and hopefully encourage parents to continue learning at home with their children. Following this, we would like to extend our learning to the wider community. We have great links with our local library and would love to run our Coding and a Cuppa workshops with members of the local community.
