Junior Interdisciplinary Design Curriculum
Junior Interdisciplinary Curriculum
We are very excited by our Interdisciplinary curriculum at Talbot Heath and believe it to be amongst the most innovative in the UK.
To complement their Design lessons, Junior pupils take part in themed Junior Design Days which take an element of their Humanities topic and bring it to life with a practical, hands on activity day based around design and engineering.
Year 3 students learn about the genius of innovative ancient Egyptian engineering.
Year 4 students learn how important great engineering was to the success of the Roman Empire.
Year 5 students understand how the invention of the steam engine changed the culture in Britain, and how we are still benefiting from that today.
Year 6 students learn about Dorset’s pivotal role in the D-Day landings before creating their own version of the Mulberry Harbour (which is tested to the limit in our own swimming pool).
