The first three modules of the Digital Skills Programme were delivered to Year 4 with the remaining three delivered to Year 5.

The school chose this option as they felt the lessons best complemented the curriculum they were already teaching.

Our approach

Tamara and Connor received a warm welcome from the Head and Deputy Head of the school who showed them to their first classroom and introduced them to the class teachers Miss Wilde and Miss Copperthwaite. They discussed the structure and expectations of the day and set up ready to educate an eager Year 4 class.

The impact

Both classes were engaged throughout the entire sessions, volunteering their personal experiences and knowledge and completing the work set for them. Year 5 found the careers lesson particularly informative as most had not considered STEM careers before the lesson, whereas by the end of the lesson they were much more open to the idea. They were especially keen on social media and content creator opportunities.

Sadie, Year 4, said: “Thank you. I really enjoyed our workshop and I learned a lot, especially the AI pictures”.
