     Are these the tools of your trade?

As part of our ‘Discovery’ theme next term, the children will be focusing on design, invention and technological advances through history.

Each class will be given a design brief at the start of term which they will then research, plan and produce for a design exhibition in term 4 where their successes and learning journeys can be shared.

We need your help…

We would love the children to discover the wide variety of contexts in everyday life which involve design and to communicate with professionals whose job involves different aspects of the design process.

We are inviting members of our extended Granton family to become ‘design mentors’ for the next term and to take an interest in the class’ design brief. 

Involvement could be as little as responding to an emailed questionnaire about your career and how you use design.

Alternatively we would definitely welcome more regular contact through the term, perhaps a Skype meeting, advice on the design brief or even a class visit? Your input may be more theoretical or perhaps you are an expert on historic invention? Involvement will of course depend on your specific job details and of course your very busy schedules.

Whether you are an architect or a hairdresser, a printer or design mobile phones, are a web designer or an advertiser, we would LOVE to hear from you. Please do contact Miss Morris at your earliest convenience so that your skills and schedule can be matched with an appropriate year group in early January.

We thank you for your continued support in working with us to bring the curriculum to life.
