Summary

We are raising  to fund 4 iPads in our Early Years setting to enhance the children's learning and understanding of technology.

Our project is to develop and embed the use of iPads to extend the pupil's learning within the EYFS curriculum. Currently pupils don't have any access to any device like many of their counterparts in other schools - they are desperate to take their learning to another level and explore and develop a new skills set

Our students

Our pupils love learning at St. Thomas' and we all look for ways to make S=P+A+C+E for our learning, S uccess = P erseverance + A positive can-do attitude + C onfidence + E ffort.  We have 60 pupils in EYFS who are eager to use iPads to document their learning through photographs, making pictures, typing notes and using different apps. The pupils who would be using these iPads are four and five years old.

The impact of these iPads would be:

  • Pupils will be engaged in their learning and can take ownership of it;
  • Pupils will have a greater understanding of the key vocabulary or concepts for a topic or theme and develop their own language;
  • Pupils will be encouraged to be more independent in their learning.

Where your donation goes

This is what the funded money will buy...

In addition, if we are successful in funding this project the school will add further money to buy a charging and storage station for safe keeping and the additional 4 cases to protect the iPads.
