Haddenham Community Infant School is planning to create an area in the school where the children will be able to explore and de-construct technological items.

If you have any obsolete or broken pieces of technical kit that the school can use, staff would really appreciate having them.

Suitable items include old laptops, typewriters, video cameras, tape recorders, radios etc.

The school cannot accept items that contain glass for safety reasons.

If you have any items sitting sadly at home, please bring them in for the infant school pupils to explore. Using screwdrivers to take them apart will help them develop their dexterity, and seeing what's inside will contribute to their understanding of technology.
