Design Technology

Technology is an area of the curriculum that promotes children’s skills in designing and making. They have opportunities to explore artefacts and raise questions related to design and purpose. They will be taught to select appropriate materials and use equipment safely. They are encouraged to refine and redraft their ideas and become critical in their craftsmanship to meet the needs of design specifications.


In the past few years our children have built Goblin cars in collaboration with Domino Printing UK. The building has involved our Years 5 & 6 pupils working alongside engineers and apprentices. The cars have then been raced at the Gathering of Goblins at Goodwood.
