Design & Technology

  • Design & Technology is taught through half-termly cross curricular projects that follow the guidelines set out in the National Curriculum for Technology which includes problem solving using practical methods.  Children work with wood, plastic, food, textiles and many other materials. They work in groups discussing, planning, drawing and building together.

    From the beginning of their time in school the children are involved in the basic skills of technology, for example using containers for different purposes, putting bricks into patterns and building structures. As they develop, the work they produce becomes more refined and the problems they tackle are more adventurous. Movement is an important part of technology as well as healthy eating.
