Enrichment and Able Afternoon… ICT…

As part of the school’s continuing work in stretching the most able children, teachers across the school led sessions focused on their subject areas which were designed to challenge the skills of particularly talented pupils…

In ICT, children worked with new C.A.D (computer assisted design) software – Homestyler – to design and furnish rooms to a set specification. While some pupils created a luxury, functional office for Mr O’Brien, others worked on a new bedroom/bathroom suite for a hotel chain instead…

As you can see from the images, a real range of designs were created, using the pupils’ skills in both navigating the new software and adapting their creations to fit their different specifications.

The children seemed to really enjoy the sessions and some of their excellent work is now on display on the ICT gallery in our ICT suite! For those of you interested in trying Homestyler yourself… visit http://www.homestyler.com/
