These workshops allowed me to get back to my
student D&T days and re-emphasise the importance of the subject.
It has both academic and pastoral implications – especially
linked to Citizenship – the current buzz at KS2. The IT
aspects are definitely needed and using these workshops I can
incorporate relevant IT – how refreshing that will be.
I aim on developing the workshops through from Year 3 to a particular
focus for Year 6 at this time of year as they prepare for KS3.
Thank you for this day.

The ideas are really useful across all Key
Stages. I can thus see opportunities for whole-school topic work.
It was fantastic in its reinforcement of feelings about encouraging
imagination / initiative, at valuing skills vs. ‘intellect’ /
formal thinking. I will use ideas with learners as young as Foundation
to tap into interests / strengths. The IT content was very good
