Gaywood school prepare for digital age

The new intake of Year 3 children at Howard Junior School were presented with brand new iPads on Tuesday.

Every pupil in the school now has their own individual ipad which they will use through to Year 6.

Teacher Anna Clutterham said: “Each child now has a one-to-one ipad which they keep at the school.

“The iPads help engage and accelerate learning and help prepare children for the digital world.”

Since the introduction of Howard Junior’s iPad for Life scheme, the school have seen SATs scores rise year-by-year.

The school believe that the iPads are preparing children for the future, for jobs that may not even be invented yet.

Earlier this year, the school become the first in Norfolk to create open-air ‘Eco-Pod’ room complete with high-speed broadband, allowing them to use their iPad’s to learn and discover outside.
