Digital Leaders

Digital Leaders

Digital leaders are children who have a passion for technology who want to share their knowledge with others.  Our digital leaders take on this role to share their expertise, learn new skills and develop leadership skills.  The digital leaders meet regularly to complete challenges before sharing their new ideas, knowledge and expertise with others.



WELCOME TO OUR NEWEST Y5/6 DIGITAL LEADERS: Hayley, Caleb, Joey, Spencer, George, Kiitan, Olivia & Isaac

Our DLs have been sharing their knowledge and skills of using ONLINE SEQUENCER to their peers.

Our DLs showing sharing their expertise using SCRATCH!

KS1 children drew a character for us to then animate for them. Here are some of their drawings.

Here is just one happy KS1 child, who was really pleased with how we turned her character drawing into an animation.

Safer Internet Day - Success! Super assembly presentation by our DLs, followed by exciting, engaging activities.

Here's Some Feedback from our Digital Leaders after Safer Internet Day. It's safe to say that the day was a HUGE success!

We are busy preparing for Safer Internet Day. We are presenting an assembly to the Key Stages and we are selecting and preparing lessons based around this year's theme: ALL FUN AND GAMES? EXPLORING RESPECT AND RELATIONSHIPS ONLINE.

Introducing DESIGNIFY! In club this week, we've been exploring a new website that allows us to green screen without the screen!

We're getting ready to launch this year's Bebras Challenge for Computational Thinking. We just love challenges that really make you think!

The first job for our DLs is to refresh their own coding skills and assess the suitability of CODE FOR LIFE for other children throughout our school.

Our DLs have made a super start before we even hold our first meeting.  They all have their own password and login for CODE FOR LIFE  and have begun to work through the coding challenges.  


Some comments so far...

"I love the coding.  It's really fun.  I think it starts off quite easy and then gets more difficult." Olivia

"I have created my own game and shared it with everyone." Isaac

"I think it is quite easy for me, but it would be too difficult for young children, like younger than year 3." Kiitan



The Digital Leaders have now chosen and assigned themselves to a specific class in school. Each class now knows who they can call upon for help, whether it be for supporting with physical technology, demonstrating a new skill, listening to any concerns that children may have about Online Safety, or to discuss new apps or games that they are interested in at home or school. The Digital Leaders are very much looking forward to supporting their classes and sharing their expertise. 


"We are your Digital Leaders and we are here to help you. If you or your teacher need any help with Computing or Online Safety, just look for us and we will be happy to do our best to help you."
