Design & Technology
Design and Technology is an inspiring and practical subject. We strongly encourage children to use their creativity and imagination, to design and make products solving real life, contextual issues, and problems across a variety of contexts. Children work both as individuals and as members of a team to complete an exciting and memorable design process. Throughout our progressive curriculum children experience the following knowledge, vocabulary and skills - cooking and nutrition, mechanical systems, textiles, electrical systems, structures, and the digital world. Projects are developed using a structured design process; research, design, make and evaluate. This cycle aims to enable children to consider others’ needs, design and make products and evaluate the impact of their creations. By critiquing products, its function and effectiveness, our children can make adaptations to become resourceful, risk-takers able to innovate and design products in the future.
