ICT is incorporated into the science scheme of work for all years. Year 7 use their ipads to look up world records for athletics events, Year 10 and 11 use data logging to observe the potential difference generated by a magnet moving in and out of a solenoid, Year 11 determine specific latent heat of vaporisation from a graph of temperature change against time.
Spreadsheets are used for tabulating data and drawing graphs. Many SEN students are encouraged to word process homework and send them electronically to their teachers via the school learning platform ‘FireFly’. That also helps pupils organise their work and manage their time.
