Primary school children swapped the standard curriculum for bread-making, construction and architecture workshops during one school's DT week.

Pupils from nursery to Year Six at St Mark's Primary School in Mitcham have been immersed in DT every afternoon for the past five days.

Kristina Holness, Year Five teacher and DT co-ordinator said: "It was a great success. The children loved it and got a lot out of it.

"Doing DT for a week as a whole school effort, the children were completely immersed in the subject and it was a lot easier to get children passionate about it."

Gingerbread men and shoe-box house model designs were some of her favourite results from the crafty week.

The school is now considering more subject-dedicated weeks in the future.
