OUR PROJECT

About us

Kings Furlong Junior School is a fantastic school that has children's learning at the heart of everything we do. We aim to inspire learning, develop character, build community and will always give whatever it takes to get the best out of our children. 

What do we want?

We are working hard to develop our computing curriculum this year and children LOVE learning more and more about computing every day. The world of programming is something that has really caught the attention of children across the school and so we would love to purchase some crumble kits. Crumble kits teach children coding through exciting and engaging physical computing and can be used as a cross curricular approach in many subjects, especially art, science, maths and Design & Technology. 

Who is this for?

The crumble kits will be used by the whole school across the curriculum. 

Why do we want it?

Our children have a real love for computing and we want to be able to show them how computing and programming can be used to create a range of products. The children would be given the chance to use their imagination to create products like their own vehicle, nightlight, game or even artwork.  These would make use of lights, switches or buzzers that the pupils have programmed themselves. It will give our school's programming a whole new WOW factor!
