Our Learning – DT

Hello I am Mrs Denham and I have responsibility for

co-ordinating Design Technology across the school.

I am keen that children have the opportunity to explore all areas of Design & Technology and are inspired to design for a purpose. We are currently integrating new topics of study into the KS2 curriculum from the Practical Action website for children. These give children real-life problems for them to try and find a solution for… remember today’s children are tomorrows inventors!
