Pupils from St Andrew's Primary School in Bulmer develop skills with interactive projects while under coronavirus lockdown




Youngsters from St Andrew’s Primary School in Bulmer have been boosting their development skills with a range of interactive projects while remaining at home during the coronavirus lockdown.

The pupils have explored a range of topics from science experiments and artwork to bridge building and gardening.

Class teachers have provided key support by setting projects via Padlet – an online bulletin board on the school’s website, with pupils set weekly sports challenges along with various music sessions.
