Design Technology teaches children vital skills including resilience and innovation and it draws upon knowledge from other subjects such as Maths, Science and Computing too.

During their time with us, at school, children will learn about: Textiles, Food, Mechanics, Electronics and Construction. Although not all taught in every year group, the curriculum has been carefully designed to allow pupils to build upon previous knowledge and skills.

We are passionate about giving children hands-on experiences and endeavour to make lessons as practical as possible. This, in turn, helps children to carefully plan a product that is purposeful and functional. At the end of the topic, children are encouraged to evaluate their product and consider what, if any, changes they would make if they were to make it again.
