GROUP AND CLASS PROJECTS

These are a range of projects that have been developed for use in a modular system in Technology. They are aimed at Key Stage 2 and 3 covering between 14 to 20 hours of curriculum time. Some projects have been tried and tested and cover most strands of the National Curriculum for Technology. If you have any projects you would like us to publish, or for any further information please contact us.
