The school’s digital leaders, who are aged 10 and 11, built and programmed a Christmas light show with more than 11,000 pixel lights.

Stuart Naylor, ICT technician and teaching assistant, cut out every decoration and drilled all the holes.

The children sanded the holes and wired the show, as well as using software to synchronise the lights to music.

The light show, which proved to be a hit with the audience, was held to raise money for Derian House children’s hospice in Chorley.
