Design Technology

Design and technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject.  Our children are involved in designing and making products while solving real life problems, within a variety of contexts. They acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and are able to make many links to other areas of the curriculum.  Through the evaluation of past and present design and technology, our children 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.

Throughout the school, children work in a range of relevant contexts, including home, school, gardens, playgrounds, the local community, industry and the wider environment.
