The children’s first DT project coincides with the Christmas Fair. During this project, the children are tasked with designing, budgeting and creating gifts to sell. The food technology focus is linked to Spanish learning, where the children prepare and cook potatas bravas. In summer term, pupils work on a second Enterprise topic to raise money by organising and running a summer fair for the rest of the school.
How is climate change affecting the world? Our work is based on human geography and the impact the environment has on different populations.

In the summer term, there is the long awaited Y6 Performance at the Montgomery Theatre and the end-of-year leavers' assembly.
