We had a great time taking part in the Ouseburn Learning Trust APP Challenge. The project has run since Christmas and Year 5/6 have been beavering away designing APPs for Great North Children’s Hospital. All Year 5/6 classes got to go and visit the Hospital to find out more about the children there and what kind of APPs may help them during their stay.
They then returned to school to begin to design and code their ideas. Holly from the ‘Ouseburn Learning Trust’ helped develop our ideas.
The event culminated with a presentation to 4 Judges at Heaton Manor School. All children gave a great account of themselves. The icing on the cake was that Class 9 won! Their APP will appear on the APP store soon(ish)! We will of course let you know when this happens!
The school would like to thank all who helped organise and drive the event.
Below are some slide shows of the process and the event itself.
