Who are we?

The Digital Wizards are a pupil voice group who meet on a Tuesday. We learn new digital skills which enable us to be ‘digital leaders’ in our classroom.

One of our new jobs this year is to be ‘App Reviewers’. We look at new apps on the iPads and review them to help teachers and pupils decide on the best apps to use in class!
