Under the umbrella of FARM School, FARM BOTS curriculum has been designed to allow pupils to undertake an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. Drawing on knowledge from other subject areas such as Mathematics, Science and DT, the children will work with a wide range of appropriate materials and techniques to develop the creative, technical and practical expertise required for everyday life.
The Curriculum allows children to design and make products in an end to end process that encourages them to evaluate their own needs, while taking into account the needs of their immediate environment and the wider community, the planet and others’ wants and needs. This curriculum allows pupils to create a product that benefits their lives and their local community and develop the skills to evaluate the wider impact it has. The FARM Bots will investigate and evaluate current design and technology so they are able to discuss and plan projects that look at more sustainable and environmentally friendly materials whilst maintaining a high quality product. We believe that everyone has a part to play in climate change and reducing the impact of our own personal, community and global carbon footprint. Our Curriculum gives children the high quality design and technology education that we believe will allow them to make an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation. Friday Focus has an integral application of curriculum subjects to develop deep, meaningful and inspirational learning. This is underpinned by a challenging sequence of lessons, coherently planned towards cumulatively sufficient knowledge and resulting in deep understanding and application of skills to last a lifetime.
