Summerlea CP School Growing thoughtful learners and independent thinkers


As a result of a well-structured and planned curriculum, pupils understand Design and Technology as a process of plan, make and evaluate, and they understand and are able to discuss, the relevance to their everyday lives. During Dragon’s Den week pupils understand why creativity and consumer opinion is important, as the most popular designs make the most profit, resulting in the most money for School resources. In food technology pupils gain knowledge of how to cook a range of increasingly complex foods and of sustainability and where the different foods come from. Forest School presents the pupils with a wide range of hands-on, real-life problems and design decisions, as well as nurturing team work skills and resilience.
