Design Technology

'I like to make 3D vehicles using a saw to cut wood. It is so fun!'  AP Year 2


'It love to design and make new things'. JA Year 5

Design and Technology is an inspiring and practical subject. The subject encourages children to learn and think creatively whilst testing and making. Children are encouraged to use their creativity, imagination, as well as independent thought, to design and make products within a variety of contexts. All children follow three areas of learning; mechanisms, textiles and food technology. This ensures that every child achieves a high level of skill-based learning throughout their academic career. Learning is made cross curricular where possible. All elements of learning are purposeful to the individual.
