The computer lab is well equipped with thirty computers and an interactive whiteboard.
The children at Normanhurst School visit the computer room once a week for a lesson with Ms Taylor. They also use it at other times with their class teacher. They use the computers in a variety of ways, to help with work in different curriculum areas (for example maths, English) and also to learn computer skills.
Some of the computer skills we learn are:
how to use and care for computer equipment appropriately
word processing skills (creating and editing documents)
accessing information and conducting research
using the internet appropriately
understanding and using email
multimedia skills (paint and draw, creating slideshows, movie making)
creating and using databases
using peripherals such as digital cameras and scanners
creating and using spreadsheets
The students use their skills to complete some exciting and creative projects.
