We believe that children and young adults should have fun whilst they learn.


Our engaging workshops aim to support learning in line with National Curriculum subjects and focus on 'hidden learning' to allow participants to explore, create and showcase their products.

Pupils should be taught:

  • Pupils should be taught to develop their techniques, including their control and their use of materials, with creativity, experimentation and an increasing awareness of different kinds of art, craft and design.


Pupils should be taught:

  • measure, compare, add and subtract: lengths (m/cm/mm); mass (kg/g); volume/capacity (l/ml)


Pupils should be taught:

  • compare and group materials together, according to whether they are solids, liquids or gases

  •   observe that some materials change state when they are heated or cooled, and measure or research the temperature at which this happens in degrees Celsius (°C)


Pupils should be taught:


  • use research and develop design criteria to inform the design of innovative, functional, appealing products that are fit for purpose, aimed at particular individuals or groups


  • generate, develop, model and communicate their ideas through discussion and annotated sketches





  • select from and use a wider range of tools and equipment to perform practical tasks

  • select from and use a wider range of materials and components, including construction materials, textiles and ingredients, according to their functional properties and aesthetic qualities





  • investigate and analyse a range of existing products

  • evaluate their ideas and products against their own design criteria and consider the views of others to improve their work




Pupils should be taught:

  • are competent in the arts of speaking and listening, making formal presentations and demonstrating to others
