Design and Technology

Design and Technology develops children’s skills and knowledge in design, structures, mechanisms, electrical control and a range of materials, including food. It encourages children’s creativity and encourages them to think about important issues.

  • Increase their knowledge and skills to enable them to create high-quality designs
  • Think critically through thorough testing and evaluating
  • Understand and apply the principles of nutrition and learn to cook

We aim to, wherever possible, link work to other disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing, and art. The children are also given opportunities to reflect upon and evaluate past and present design technology, its uses and its effectiveness and are encouraged to become innovators and risk-takers...
