Our children get to blast off on journeys of learning and discovery in our space themed ICT room. The mission of the ICT room is to provide a fun introduction to computers and to a wealth of screen-based learning. Our large touch screen smart board has many uses including being used to play stories, nursery rhymes that help to encourage actions including makaton and our pre-school staff encourage phonic recognition and development through software and the use of interactive pens to enable children to copy and make marks.
The five computers are equipped with child friendly keyboards and mice and run carefully selected software designed to encourage learning through play, boosting hand to eye co-ordination and the recognition of colours, shapes and numbers.
The ICT room has additional sensory facilities including a mirror ball and starlight panel, that create the perfect setting for capturing children’s imagination when sharing books and stories.
