Scotch Orchard Primary School headteacher Wendy Horden and deputy head Jo Bishop gave a talk at the Discovery Education event at Thinktank on using augmented reality to help children with reading.

The technology, which brings printed books to life with digital sounds and graphics, creates an interactive experience for pupils at the city school.

Wendy said: “We’ve been using digital technologies in our lessons for some time now, and they have had a huge impact in bringing learning to life for our pupils.

“We very much enjoyed sharing our knowledge with other progressive digital schools from across the UK.”
