As part of the Digital Technologies Curriculum students have been engaging and having fun with Sphero. Sphero is a small robotic ball which students can control using their iPads. Sphero is used in the Year 3-6 classroom in a number of maths activities, spelling activities, as well as during Digital Technology lessons. Many thanks to the P&F who kindly donated funds to purchase two Spheros. It is greatly appreciated and widely used in the Year 3-6 classroom. Below is a list of what some of the students like about Sphero.
