Our aspiration is to ensure that children are engaged, inspired and challenged throughout each topic and therefore enabled to continue to develop and secure their skill base.  Childrenwill be encouraged to use their skills to create their own independent work.  In order to achieve their best potential the children will have access to a range of good quality resources that will support each topic and enable a confident approach.

As your child moves through Pinehurst Primary he/she will develop skills throughout their school life, please click on the link below which details how your child's skills will build throughout Pinehurst Primary.

We also have a schools food advisor/cookery specialist who visits us on a  weekly basis for a full day on a class rotation basis,  promoting healthy eating and sharing/showing/cooking with the children using various different foods. As well as linking food to the current learning in your child's topic. The children explore different foods from different cultures and foods linked to their history or geography. The children experience how to make foods from scratch and create this themselves using all the elements.

During the children's Design and Technology topics, the children immerse themselves in the design, evaluation and making process using a variety of tools and materials which suit their topic.
