Summer 2 ICT Planning

Just a short bulletin this week!

As you are aware we will be using the Switched on ICT scheme of work from September. I thought that we should take the opportunity to try out a unit of work this half term in preparation for then. I suggest that we work on the unit that the new class will start with in September. This will allow you time to familiarise yourself with the scheme and we can work together to produce a suitable planning format and have a trial run.

  • Years 1 to 5 will work on one Switched on ICT unit.
  • Year 6 will complete their Lonely Planet guides and complete some Lego Mindstorm activities.
  • Foundation stage also have access to the EYFS Switched on ICT activities should they wish to try some out.


There are lots of trips, events and activities going on this half term. Please take the opportunity to photograph them! Photos are great for your First of the Month books but they also help for the newsletter and magazine!

Parent iPad workshops

In the coming weeks I'll be inviting parents of Year 5 and 6 children to join some iPad workshops. This will likely take place on Tuesday mornings, 9-10am. The workshops will introduce the parents to the common apps that we use at JSD and give them an idea of how the devices can be used. It might be nice to involve some children from your classes to join or support some of the sessions. More on this soon!

Just for fun...
