DESIGN AND TECHNOLOGY

Design & Technology Curriculum

Through Design and Technology, our children are encouraged to identify, examine and solve practical problems and to make existing situations better. The cross curricular nature of Design and Technology offers a setting for the children to apply knowledge and skills from a number of other subjects including art, language, maths and science as well as developing their imaginative thinking. Children are encouraged to be inventive, using a range of materials and tools, thus developing, modifying and evaluating their ideas through a series of projects. By working with a variety of materials we aim to help children learn important life skills. Children learn independently and in groups, learning to co-operate, plan, design and create their work. They learn to make their own decisions within a supportive environment.
