INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY (ICT)

"We aim for the children at Bushvalley Primary School to have the skills to meet the needs of a rapidily changing world" (Bushvalley ICT School Vision) 

At Bushvalley the children have access to a range of ICT resources, as each classroom is equipped with an Interactive Whiteboard, Desktop Computers, Laptop and a Digital Camera.  We have a computer suite, which has additional laptops for each class to use along with a range of ICT resources such as,Bee-Bots, Pro-Bots and Roamers.
 

Internet Safety

The Internet has vastly changed how children view the world. It can be accessed almost everywhere. At Bushvalley we support the use of the Internet to enrich children’s lives but it is also vital that children are aware of how to use it appropriately and safely.
If you have concerns about your child’s use of the internet please contact the  Mrs Wylie (Principal) or Mrs Irwin (ICT co-ordinator)

 Safer Internet Day 2018 

Tuesday 6th February marked Internet Safety Day.  Mrs Irwin planned a range of fun activities for children to develop their understanding of a safe responsible and positive use of the internet. 

Children in Foundation Stage and Key Stage One learnt about Internet Safety through the story of Buddy the Dog and how to use our tablets safely and at Key Stage Two the children learnt about the importance of the SMART motto. 

The children enjoyed a video gaming night on Monday 5th February.  This was a very successful event, which was followed by an Interent Safety talk to parents.

Mr Irwin took the whole school for an important Internett safety assembly on the Tuesday and set the children their homework poster challenge.  See below for the winners.

The PSNI visited school on Wednesday 7th February to talk to the children about Internet Safety.
