Design & Technology
Design & Technology gives children the opportunity to develop skills, knowledge and understanding of designing and making functional products. We feel it is vital to nurture creativity and innovation through design, and by exploring the designed and made world in which we all live and work – design technology is an exciting vehicle that they can use to explore this. Pupils will learn about design and technology past and present; they will understand the role of the end user in product development and evaluation. Through the design process they will learn about aesthetics, social and environmental issues and concerns – for example sustainability – as well as developing their practical skills. Design Technology provides opportunities to develop problem solving skills.
