Design & Technology

This is a very practical subject whereby we encourage pupils to generate ideas and then apply practical skills to design, make and improve products. From this we encourage pupils to explain and develop their ideas and then form evaluations, in order to improve their outcomes. They are taught the safe use of a range of tools to measure, mark, cut and assemble models. Pupils are encouraged to evaluate and discuss their work with adults and peers. The curriculum includes:

  • Food
  • Materials
  • Textiles
  • Electricals and electronics
  • Construction
  • Mechanics

We strive to encompass Design Technology through cross curricular links and within our projects.
