Curriculum – Design Technology

Design and technology provides our children with an opportunity to tackle problems of a practical nature and develop an understanding of social and environmental issues and industrial practices.

The fact that Design technology is cross curricular offers a setting for children to apply knowledge and skills from a number of other subjects including art, literacy, maths and science. Skills are developed using various tools and through designing and making artefacts and food products with an emphasis on healthy living. Working with a variety of materials aims to help children learn important life skills.

Children learn independently and in groups, learning to co-operate, plan, design and make and evaluate their work. They learn to make their own decisions with help and encouragement.

Our Design Technology Coordinator is Miss Tupling.
