School goes through time with The Doctor

Not many youngsters can say that they walk through a TARDIS to get to their classroom.

But pupils at Howard Junior School in Gaywood certainly can with its Doctor Who-themed corridor.

Headteacher Gregory Hill said his school was likely to be the first in the region to have lessons based on the BBC Television science-fiction programme.

“It’s relevant at the moment, it’s about equality with the first female doctor, science, technology and history. Wrap that all up and it’s very exciting learning.”

The children are also using an augmented-reality learning app on their iPads.

Mr Hill explained: “When they hold up their iPads to an object, like the TARDIS,  they can see in it, or hold it up to a fire extinguisher and the times table will come up.

“They can explore objects and see them move. The children have written so much about it all.”
