Early Years Technology

The use of Technology is an important part of the Early Years Curriculum and is integrated into the daily planning. Each class has an Interactive Whiteboard and the children are encouraged in their investigation of the world around them to use a variety of equipment, including CD players, programmable toys, walkie-talkies, remote control cars, as well as Tuff Cams and V-Tech cameras. A variety of programs on I Pads are used to enhance each child’s learning, and for Reception children Netbooks to introduce keyboard skills. The purpose of technology at this stage is to encourage familiarity of the different equipment and to provide the fundamental skills they will need as they continue through their schooling life.
