At St Margaret’s Anfield CE Primary School we ensure that every child has access to exciting, new technologies. Computing is taught both as a stand alone subject and throughout the Curriculum. Computing is also a vital part of the National Curriculum which provides children with essential life skills.

In school we have a wide variety of equipment which the children can use, including Lego WeDo and even our own robots! We also have Minecraft Education where children can explore their History and Geography topics through Minecraft. We also use Minecraft Education in Maths, Science, Art and a variety of other subjects. It really enhances the children’s enjoyment and engagement.

We also have strong curriculum support from Mr Triggs who comes in from MGL. Mr Triggs brings new technologies to school such as the BBC Microbit, MiP Robots and Immersive Reality Headsets.

This term we will also have a visit from Google Expeditions where Years 1-6 will step into a fully immersive world. We will use this experience to influence and inspire our writing.
