MY PROJECT

Laughton Junior and Infant School is a wonderful school in Rotherham Authority, located in Sheffield.

What we want

We would like to purchase VR headsets (ideally to use alongside iPads) to give children an immersion into contexts; enhancing the Geography, English and History aspects of the curriculum. In particular we would like the headsets to be able to travel back in time to look at key aspects of history and to visit Mexico and the Galapagos Islands in Geography.

Who is this for?

This is for our whole school, to use across a range of subjects.

Why do we want it?

All children should have the same opportunities to access technology as part of the curriculum.

As a school we plan for the following to be realised from your generous donations:

1.  An increasing number of pupils will be intrigued and curious to pursue STEM based subjects including coding.

2.   Pupils will be even more engaged in their own learning across the curriculum and classes.

3.   Pupils, parent and teachers will become more aware of the language and concepts of STEM, Tech & Coding.

4.   Pupils (and teachers) will be encouraged to develop their own STEM, Tech and/or Coding projects & resources.

5.   Teachers will become more confident in the application of technology within the classroom to enhance the learning experience.
