We are excited to update our learning robotics programme with new EV3 LEGO robots. EV3 robots are known for growing students' critical thinking and creativity in Computer Science, Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. Students can design, build, revise, improve and test their models, and learn how to programme from easy sequences to complex algorithms using programming building blocks or Python programming language. These programmes come with EV3 sets.

At our current phase, we use EV3 for after school programmes (ASA). The greatest challenge we face is getting students to leave the ASA room! The plan is to develop robotic curriculum in Primary Computing in the coming months. EV3s are also the ideal resource to provide students with the opportunity to enter interschools robotics competitions, which is something we are looking forward to in the future.  

Primary 1:1 iPad Programme (Year 3-6)

With ever evolving challenges posed by online safety issues, we constantly update our Digital Literacy units to address new and emerging safety concerns. We will continue to rely on your support in purchasing and updating different learning apps in the reminder of the year to always ensure seamless learning and digital safety of our children. A list of required apps for each year group from Year 3 can be found Setting up for Non-Apple Users. Click here for details about our Primary 1:1 iPad Programme (Year 3-6).
