Design & Technology

Miss James

Design and technology provides children with the opportunity to experience a range of natural and manmade materials. Using creativity and imagination pupils design and make a variety of products.

The aims are –

To develop creative, technical and practical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently and to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world.

To 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.

To critique, evaluate and test their ideas and products and work of others.

To understand and apply the principles of nutrition and learn to cook.

Design and Technology projects will often link with the class topic. Children will be designing and making products using a variety of materials and tools and will also be evaluating existing products.

Each term children will be take part in a cooking activity which will again link with the class topic. The basic principles of a healthy, varied diet will be followed when preparing dishes
