"Every Child Flourishing"

Design & Technology

Our curriculum intent for design and technology is that all children will:

  • Use a wide range of tools and equipment to perform practical tasks.
  • Appreciate how key design events and individuals in design and technology have helped shape the world.
  • Have a good understanding of the design, make, evaluate process.

Once each term a day is set aside for children to complete a range of exciting design and technology projects. The skills learnt in design and technology not only provide life skills (e.g. cooking and building) but also offers the oppurtunity to develop/embed knowledge that supports learning across other curriculum areas. For example: children's knowledge about the properties of materials links closely and builds on work done in science.
