From Year 4, design technology is taught in a purpose built workshop which is equipped with state of the art equipment including a laser cutter, milling machine and 3D printer. The subject requires children to creatively apply knowledge and skills to solve practical problems. They then use this knowledge and understanding to devise a method or solution, realise that in a practical manner, and evaluate the end product and the steps during the process.
Art is an important part of the school experience at The Mall. From the moment your child joins the school, they will take part in a range of creative art activities. In Reception to Year 3, they are taught art in their classroom and then from Years 4 to 6, they are taught in a purpose-built, spacious studio. There they will be taught technical and practical skills to enable them to use a wide range of materials confidently and competently, including firing their own clay works of art in our kiln.
