Design and Technology


DT consists of giving the children opportunities to work with a variety of materials and equipment to produce a finished result. DT units are made up of 4 important stages;

•             Looking at present designs and how things work

•             Designing a new product

•             Making the product

•             Evaluating the product made

Children learn to improve their ideas through questioning and constructive evaluation. The products made cover a range of materials and themes such as;

•             mechanisms (cam, Pneumatics)

•             textiles

•             cooking

•             working with wood

•             structures

•             working with card

•             working with mouldable materials such as clay

The materials given to the children create an enjoyable challenge and all children are taught to use the equipment effectively and safely.
