The digital classroom, and Peterhouse Primary School, was officially opened by Great Yarmouth MP Brandon Lewis last Friday.

And tablets, Chromebooks, laptops, and an interactive whiteboard have been provided by Samsung, as well as key training for teachers and ongoing technical support, creating an enhanced interactive learning environment.

The resources will support students' digital skills development and inspire young learners to positively benefit from the power of everyday technology, aiding them in their current studies and future careers.

At the opening, Mr Lewis met young students from year three who gave him a tour of the new classroom. The MP was impressed by their technological know-how as he participated in an interactive coding lesson using Sphero robots that the young students had created for his visit.
