Lego We Do software has been installed on all laptops and a coding afterschool club start on 17th April 2015, for which we have already had positive feedback from parents. Pupils will be using Scratch initially and will then move on to using Lego We Do once they become familiar with the layout. Lee Parker has discussed possible Lego training for staff with Miss Lilly and Mrs Davies. This will allow for Lego We Do to be used as a tool to improve the use of Literacy, Numeracy and ICT throughout the curriculum.
