Craven Primary Academy pupils learned about the internet during a recent KC Simnet Challenge event.

Year four and year five pupils took part in the hands-on session, which simulated how the internet works in an innovative and educational way.

Jayne Winstanley, Craven Primary Academy education support officer, said: “The children really enjoyed the activity and it provided them with a solid understanding of how the internet works whilst keeping things simple.

“They were all given a specific role within the activity and that helped to make it both engaging and fun at the same time.”

Brendon Smurthwaite, KC’s community coordinator, added: “The Simnet Challenge really is a great way of demonstrating in an interactive way how the internet works, and the feedback we had from the children and teachers alike was very positive.

“The volunteers that took part from across our business enjoyed delivering the workshop and are looking forward to taking the activity to more schools during the coming months.”
