Youngsters at closure-threatened Clunbury Primary School, near Bishop’s Castle, are using Nintendo DS consoles in the classroom to boost their learning.

And the consoles are linked up wirelessly so teachers can send and receive work and assess each pupil’s progress separately or set group tasks to enhance the learning experience.

Using educational software, the youngsters are improving their maths and English skills while getting to play on the state-of-the-art gadgets.

The school is also using MP3 recorders, blogs and podcasts as teaching tools and as a way of communicating with parents and other schools around the world.Headteacher Andrew Davies said using the consoles was an “exciting and alternative way of approaching education”


The school won the 2007 Becta ICT Excellence Award  (Primary School).
