We have recently purchased fifty, 10 inch android tablets for our Nursery and KS1, to start embedding mobile technology into our classrooms.


Children now have regular and instant access to the internet, education city, reading eggs and educational apps. Children still have access to PC’s and laptops in the classrooms.
One of the apps we are using is called eduDroid, which has been designed for children at primary level in the UK. This can be downloaded for parents to use at home on an android device by visiting
