Design Technology

Design and technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject.  Pupils are involved in designing and making products while solving real life problems, within a variety of contexts. Pupils acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science, computing and art.  Through the evaluation of past and present design and technology, pupils develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world. 

The aims for teaching design and technology are to:
*develop the creative, practical and technical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently.
*build and apply a repertoire of knowledge, understanding and skills in order to design and make prototypes and products.
*critique, evaluate and test their ideas and the work of and others.
*understand and apply the principles of nutrition and learn how to cook.

In both Key Stage 1 and 2 pupils should work in a range of relevant contexts, including home, school, gardens, playgrounds, the local community, industry and the wider environment.
