Design Technology

Curriculum Statement
Design and Technology lays at the forefront of creativity. The subject allows for children to bring their ideas and designs to life using their ever-developing skills of creativity and problem solving and they are encouraged to work not just individually but as part of a team. Throughout the topic, the children are exposed to the wider world, seeing how products have been developed over time and the importance designers and inventors have on influencing new products in today’s society. These first-hand experiences will enable them to understand more about the world they live in with experiences that will be appropriate, relevant, challenging, and satisfy the children’s curiosity. Design and technology provides endless possibilities for the children to apply English, maths, science, and computing in an alternative manner throughout each of the products they create. This subject thrives on allowing children a means to express their creativity, children of all abilities to express themselves and bring the unique ideas of the individuals to life.
