I.T. Teams Project. The children in year three have commenced a 'TEAMS PROJECT' that will be taught by Mr McHugh when Mrs Houston is teaching Welsh in year four. This is an exciting new project and parents will recieve a letter from Mr McHugh next week outlining the aims of the project. This week was the introductory lesson and I have updated a series of photographs of year three pupils' being introduced to new IT skills that will be necessary for the children to participate in the project. The children have been advised that the 'Teams' must only be used as a forum that relates to academic purposes and not for any that are social. The information that your child writes on this shared learning device will be monitored by staff on a regular basis and we would be grateful that you as parents support us in our goal to ensure that the children use IT responsibly. Many thanks, Mrs Houston..
