Design and Technology is an inspiring, rigorous, and practical subject. Using creativity and inspiration, 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. We teach our children to tap into their own opinions and ideas developing an honest approach and build them individually as designers.
Our children are taught to select and use appropriate tools safely and effectively to make a product. In all areas of Design and Technology the children are encouraged to consider the effectiveness of their designs and requirements of the product. Everyone will have the opportunity to learn and extend their understanding, experience, and application in the use of technology, including I.C.T, in as wide a variety of situations as possible developing a pathway to success.
We nurture our children, and they are introduced and supported in their learning about what is healthy and good for our bodies. The children develop a deep and secure understanding of how to prepare and cook healthy meals and develop their design and technology language to support their problem solving and creative applications.
Our Golden Threads of Aspirations and children being Worldly Wise run clearly through our cohesive, progressive DT curriculum.
