Last year you may remember that Miss Russell and I took a group of children to a pilot project named The Pupil Voice Project. We were in the privileged position of being one of only 12 schools in Essex to take part in the design and support project.
Our KSM Team went to all of the workshops and took part in a design process to help generate ideas, problem solve, and create products, tools and games that would help children to learn in the classroom and around the school environment.
Last week we had a visit from Tom, the leader of the project and he brought 2 prototypes into school for us to trial. I have asked Evie-Rose and Rachel (5F) to be the project ambassadors and they will be using the Play Time Helper and the Reading Pad in their classroom, as well as with some of the younger children. Both girls presented the products in Gold Book assembly last week.
Tom supplied us with an iPad to use for a month. On the iPad are 5 specific Apps that support children with learning. If you would like to use them at home they are listed below.
I am so very proud of Evie-Rose, as she was the reason that some of the other prototypes were created! Her ideas inspired the team of designers and other schools are trialing her products.
