Design & Technology

The aims of our Design and Technology curriculum are:

  • To develop imaginative thinking in children and to enable them to talk about what they like and dislike when designing and making things.
  • To enable children to talk about how things work, and to draw and model their ideas.
  • To encourage children to select appropriate tools and techniques for making a product, whilst following safe procedures.
  • To explore attitudes towards the made world and how we live and work in it.
  • To develop an understanding of technological processes and products, their manufacture and their contribution to our society.
  • To foster enjoyment, satisfaction and purpose in designing and making things.
