CLWB AFAL [APPLE TEAM]

Our Clwb Afal is a mixture of Yr 5 & 6 pupils.

In Clwb Afal meetings, which happen every Tuesday from      3:20pm to 4:20pm, we discuss and sort out iPads, MacBooks and laptops such as, update them, make sure suitable storage is being used and delete any uneccessary items on gadgets. This term we have been working hard to find out new websites, apps and resorting where iPad apps can be placed in their folders. We also help to upload work to j2launch for our ICT Portfolio.
