Design & Technology

Design Technology provides children with the opportunities to create new ideas and solutions through exploration and innovation. We foster focused tasks and activities to ensure the development in skills and knowledge across the key stages, to enable children to design, make and evaluate products confidently.

Through their project work, our children are presented with real life problems to be solved, things to be designed, made and tested. Children are taught how to plan an idea and how to use tools and equipment safely. Children work with a wide variety of material and are introduced to simple technological skills. Design activities give the children the experience of practical work and widen their perspective of the world around them.
