Through the use of creativity and imagination pupils design and make products that solve real and relevant problems, within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values.
Our curriculum for Design and Technology aims to ensure that all pupils:
• develop the creative, technical and practical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently and to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world
• build and apply a repertoire of knowledge, understanding and skills in order to design and make high quality prototypes and products for a wide range of users
• critique, evaluate and test their ideas and products and the work of others
• understand and apply the principles of nutrition and understand how to cook
Through Design and Technology the children are taught to design, make and evaluate whilst developing their technical knowledge.
