We love working alongside 'Technology Tom' on design projects. All our classes will have this opportunity over the school year. This year 2 class have been looking at how we use the wind to propel a vehicle. They considered aspects of the chassis design and wheels before the sail design. The land yachts were then test with giant hair dryers!

Our pupils have been thinking about food technology and the way we combine flavours to make healthy, nutritious meals. A chef from Chartwell’s came into school with the ‘On Your Marks’ cooking challenge. The children were invited to consider what makes a healthy meal then to prepare and taste the final dishes. Of course we had a bit of fun with timing of the cooking and the voting afterwards. They might try the recipes at home with their family.
