Design and Technology
The intention of our Design Technology curriculum is to encourage children to foster a questioning approach to designing and making as well as developing their curiosity about how different technologies are used and how they work. In addition to the design and creation of products, children will also learn about and have the experience of designing and creating nutritious foods. They will learn about the importance of a balanced diet and begin to understand how different foods are produced and understand about these processes.
Our bespoke curriculum design ensures the children take part in many focused practical tasks in which they develop skills and knowledge through a topic framework. The children are given the opportunity to work with a variety of construction kits, simple mechanisms and a wide selection of materials, tools and techniques. Children are encouraged to follow a design process; through discussion and research, designing and making, evaluating and modifying their work, both individually and in small groups.
