The National Curriculum framework expects children to combine practical and technological skills with creative thinking to design and make products and systems that meet human needs.
The children will be taught specific skills and knowledge according to the framework for each Key Stage. They will be given the opportunity to use these skills independently and creatively often in combination with skills and knowledge from the Maths, Science and Art curricula.
A wide variety of materials and resources will be used to suit the needs of the tasks. Reclaimed, free and fairtrade materials are used as much as possible,
The school participates in local and regional competitions and, for the third year running, were the proud winners of the regional competition last year.
