At Blair Peach Primary School, we believe in preparing our children for a technological future. We aim to provide children with essential life skills by ensuring that design and technology is an inspiring, practical subject. Children have stimulating and exciting DT projects that enhance their learning. Our pupils design and make products that solve real, relevant problems within a variety of contexts. We help them to develop technical knowledge and skills, to handle and use tools with care and with awareness of health and safety issues. They are encouraged to take risks, to become resourceful, innovative citizens. Pupils have the opportunities to evaluate past and present designs to develop a critical understanding of the impact of design and technology on their daily life and in the wider world.
Key Stage 2 pupils at Blair Peach Primary develop their scientific enquiry and investigation skills using Empiribox Science which is an engaging style of teaching science through lots of hands on practical activities.
