"Design and Technology is about making things that people want and that work well. Creating these things is hugely exciting: it is an inventive, fun activity".
James Dyson, Chairman, Dyson Ltd
The importance of design and technology
As from 1st September 2014 the new National Curriculum for England comes into force.This new curriculum contains the programmes of study and attainment targets for all subjects at all key stages. As a school we are teaching these programmes of study using a thematic curriculum where it is relevant and appropriate.
For more information on what your child will be learning in school go to your child’s year group. Please remember every half term we send out a Learning Leaflet so that you know what your child will be learning and how you can support them at home.
