Pupil Voice


App Design

On the 15th of November our school welcomed Nathan Parks, a digital creative, to help our pupils create some designs for mobile apps.

Here's what our pupils thought:

 

My favourite part was drawing the app. I learned that anybody could make an app not just random people. I liked when we performed it in front of Mr Parks and Mr Lucey.
