Design & Technology

 The aim of our curriculum is to build the knowledge, skills and attitudes pupils need to become informed, articulate and empowered. The Design Technology curriculum builds pupils knowledge and technical skills through an inspiring, practical subject. Pupils design and make a range of products considering function and aesthetics. They learn to evaluate, adapt and improve considering their own and others requirements.

As part of DT, children learn about nutrition and cookery, preparing a range of foods reflecting different cultures and dietary requirements.

Design technology projects help children to develop transferable skills such as innovation, resilience, reasoning and critical curiosity. Links to other subjects such as computing, art and maths, with DT provide an authentic opportunity to apply skills in a cross curricular project.

By learning about technology in the wider world, especially through local provision, children gain a greater understanding of the fundamental role this plays in our lives.
