iPad intervention study

Last year we took part in an Ipad intervention study linked to Nottingham University.

The study looked at a maths app called 'OneBillion' being used within our Reception classes to aid the teaching of maths. As part of the study the children had to use the maths games for half an hour a day for 6 weeks, and then complete a maths game 'test' that used all of their knowledge and understanding gained so far. The children in Reception made exceptional progress, gaining 1 month of progress per week, so 6 months of progress was made altogether. This study was even more interesting as Nottingham University compared our results to a school in Malawi where they also carried out the study. We were featured on BBC Click as well as in the Nottingham Evening Post, as such gains were made. We hope to carry on using the app even though the study has finished, and we would like to thank all of the children who took part. Please see below for the Nottingham Evening Post article.

Thank you
