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.
