In your Technology lessons in Year 7 you will work with a range of materials. These will include resistant materials such as wood and plastics, textiles and food. You will also learn valuable designing skills.
During the year you will work with different teachers, each expert in the area that they teach. With each teacher you will complete a project, during which you will design and make a product. You will be using a range of machines so it is important that you behave responsibly and safely.
In Years 8 and 9 you will continue to develop the skills you have gained in Year 7, as well as learning some new ones. The products that you will make will become increasingly adventurous. Towards the end of Year 9 you will have the opportunity to choose an area of Technology to study at GCSE level in Years 10 and 11.
Technology is an important area of the curriculum as design affects all areas of our life. Currently, the design of these products (although often made in other countries) brings £11 billion into the British economy.
Pupils are ambitious, generally hard working and want to achieve highly.
