22 Jan Ambler children display amazing creations at Islington’s ‘Celebration of Computing’
Ambler children displayed their amazing electronic creations at Islington’s annual ‘Celebration of Computing‘ last week.
The event, held on Thursday 18th January, saw more than 500 pupils from 45 primary schools across the borough come together to showcase their digital projects.

Ambler’s E-Cadets representatives chose to utilise an iPad app called Comic Life for their project, working really hard and independently to create posters, ‘How to’ guides, newspaper reports and fact files.
A panel of judges, which included the Mayor of London’s first chief digital officer Theo Blackwell, were impressed by the variety and quality of projects on display, demonstrating how Islington’s computing-focused curriculum is coming to life in the classroom.

All of the Ambler pupils thought that the trip was a great success and left feeling proud of what they had achieved. They were also excited to check out what other schools have been doing to get inspiration for future projects.
