Pupils said it makes classes more fun
A school is using Nintendo DS games consoles in the classroom as an innovative way of teaching pupils.
Clunbury Primary School in Shropshire was voted the top Information and Communications Technology (ICT) school in England by government agency, Becta.
Head teacher Andrew Davies said it is an "exciting and alternative way" of approaching education".
The consoles are linked so the teacher can send and receive work and assess each pupil separately.
Pupils said it makes their work easier and more fun.
The school also uses MP3 recorders, blogs and podcasts as teaching tools and as a way of communicating with parents and other schools around the world.
Clunbury Primary School is one 16 primary schools in Shropshire facing merger. A decision on whether it will be amalgamated with Lydbury North primary is expected on Wednesday.
