Design and Technology develops children’s skills and knowledge in design, structures, mechanisms, electrical control, and a range of materials, including food. It encourages children's creativity and encourages them to think about a products purpose and the process in which it takes to create a successful product.
Design and 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 and Technology allows children to add real life context to learning, combining skills learnt from other subjects such as Maths, English, Science and Art.
