Design & Technology

During their time in school, all children will have practical experience of research, planning, making and evaluating through a varied programme of projects that enable them to explore skills and knowledge and practise various techniques. We provide opportunities for them to think creatively, solve practical problems and apply their learning whilst engaging in meaningful real-life tasks.  They will gain knowledge of food preparation and learn new skills, whilst being taught about nutrition and food hygiene.

They are encouraged to evaluate their work and refer back to original plans, design briefs and prototypes, whilst seeking ways to improve their performance.  Children learn how to safely use a wide range of tools, equipment and materials, throughout the key stages, and will make decisions with increasing independence.
