What an amazing day at the NEC @RRIS

With much excitement the day we had been looking forward to had finally arrived!  The DLs got up early for their 3 hour journey to the NEC with the added bonus of seeing the solar eclipse on the way.  Each pair of DLs had a tab with them to document the day and what a lot of photographs and video they took!

Once we had checked in and received our special ID passes everyone looked around, playing and testing out all the fantastic toys and technology (plus who knew we could even travel to Hogwarts?) A quick stop for a nibble of lunch before our presentation was in order and then we were on stage.  Everyone managed to hide their nerves (maybe that was just Mrs S) and answered questions from the audience.  Sadly the Skype chat back to school didn’t go quite as planned but at least the audience did get to see the other DLs for a minute.  All the DLs and their parents said how much they enjoyed the day and hoped that lots more schools would start having Digital Leaders to link up and share ideas with.

We would also like to say a really big thank you to Hoodies4Schools who sponsored us with our amazing logo tshirts and Identibadge who donated our personalised lanyards – we all thought how brilliant we looked.

We’re off to the NEC @RRIS

We are so excited to say that we have been invited to make a presentation at The Education Show at Birmingham NEC on Friday 20th March.  12 of the Digital Leaders and their parents will be coming along and we can’t wait to tell everyone about what we do!  Not all the Digital Leaders are able to come so they made a little video for everyone at the show to see.  Check back here soon to find out how we got on.

On the BBC News for Safer Internet Day @RRIS

That was a surprise! The local BBC news arrived outside our school today to interview some parents and carers about keeping children safe on the internet at home and one of our Digital Leaders got on the television!  Well done.

Supporting Reception with Beebots @RRIS

Some Reception children joined us this week to find out all about Beebots and how to program them. They worked on a one-to-one basis with a Digital leader and by the end of the session were ready to go back and show their own class.

“It was a double thumbs up session – I loved being able to teach other people, it was such good fun.” Ruby

“That was very hard work as they had not seen the Beebots before and were quite shy.” Miles
