Digital Leaders


The Irk Valley Digital Leaders are responsible for making sure we take care of the iPads and laptops in school. They also help the teachers and other children out with any computing issues they might have.


Our digital leaders have set up a computing blog where they upload technological tips and tricks and ways to improve your learning through technology. 

Urban Crew

Urban Crew 1
  • Urban Crew is a joint project between MCA and Northwards Housing, helping children become more aware of the positive role they can play both in their school and community.
  • This year we have 10 year 5 children taking part in different activities/workshops. These include: playground duties, litter picking and community visits.
  • Our Urban Crew this year: 5Y: Ahmed S, Mohammed K and Lyla 5A: Iona, Angel and Asaad. 5M: Janeeta, Izza , Maheen and Mohammed A. 
  • At the end of the year, the children on our Urban Crew will have completed an ASDAN Award, which is part of a GCSE qualification. 


In October we completed our first challenge.

As a way of getting to know each other we looked at challenge 1 from the identity module of the ASDAN workbook. The group completed the worksheet, thinking about three statements that describe how unique they are. The group also had a think about the things that make them happy and we heard some fantastic statements.

In November, we are going on a trip to the local recycling centre.
