Children at Abercromby have the chance to take part in various enrichment activities.

One of these is developing their skills with ICT (Information and Communications Technology).

We have a specialist ICT teacher, from our computer support provider, MGL (Merseyside Grid for Learning) called Sheryl who comes in regularly to introduce the children to new ICT experiences.

We know that children these days are very competent at using smart phones and tablets, so we want to develop their skills in different and innovative ways to prepare them for life in the 21st century.

The children work in small groups on different projects such as:

  • Building Lego remote control cars and learning how to drive them
  • Programming “sphero” robots using iPads
  • Learning how to use “photospeak” to animate different toys and make them talk in the children’s voices.

Take a look at our videos to see some of our work.
