I.D.L. in Kildrum

In Kildrum the children are involved in a variety of I.D.L. experiences.  These can have a focus on social subjects (Geography, History or Modern Studies) or could be related to an aspect of Health, R.M.E., or Technologies (including I.C.T.).  I.C.T. is an extremely important aspect of our work and is used in almost all curricular areas.  Our children are beginning to become more skilled in using multi-media for evaluating their work and those of peers.
