Design and Technology
The children at our school thoroughly enjoy the hands on and practical experiences that Design and Technology provide. It provides them with a range of immediate practical learning experiences and is invaluable for fostering a love of learning across all areas of the curriculum. Design and Technology sparks creativity and helps develop children of all abilities as they see a project through from inspiration to reality.
Our D.T curriculum includes designing, cooking, sewing and model making with a variety of materials, which fosters imagination and innovation.
Work in D.T. reflects the world in which children live and encourages children to use creativity and imagination to solve problems. Skills are taught and practised so that:
• Children can produce good realistic designs
• Children consider the purpose of their design
• Children measure and choose appropriate materials
• Children evaluate their end results reflectively
