Design & Technology

Our DT curriculum develops skill, knowledge and understanding of designing and making functional products. It is important to encourage creativity and innovation through design. The children achieve their objectives by exploring the everyday products we use and the world we live in.

In DT, we acquire and apply knowledge and understanding of materials and components, mechanisms and control systems, structures, existing products, quality and health and safety.
We have found our DT skills also support learning across the curriculum with strong links to science, maths and the use of computer control and, naturally, in art!
