Design and Technology
Design and technology prepares children to take part in the development of tomorrow's rapidly changing world. The subject encourages children to become autonomous and creative problem-solvers, both as individuals and as part of a team. It enables them to identify needs and opportunities and to respond by developing ideas and eventually making products and systems.
We understand that D&T allows pupils to solve problems, think creatively and develop ideas. D&T offers pupils a chance to use creative thinking and activity within a defined purpose and tangible outcome. The school is committed to nurturing pupils’ curiosity and creativity, as well as preparing them for living in a modern world where technology is rapidly changing and advancing. In teaching D&T, we aim to help pupils to:
-Develop their design and making skills.
-Develop their knowledge and understanding of design and technologies.
-Use a wide range of tools and materials.
-Learn about working safely and protective measures.
-Work individually and collaborate with other pupils in a variety of contexts.
-Develop the capability to create products of a high standard through skills and understanding.
-Evaluate products, made by themselves, their peer groups and companies.
-Explore the man-made world and encourage discussion of how we live and work within it.
-Develop an interest in and understanding of technological processes and the role of manufacturing in society.
-Understand the importance of sustainability.
-Learn the principles of nutrition, healthy eating and how to cook.
