Design and Technology

Design and Technology draws from and contributes to all the other areas of the curriculum and involves the children in planning, making and evaluating.  We encourage children to:

  • Develop their designing and making skills and nurture creativity and innovation through designing and making
  • Develop knowledge and understanding, exercising their initiative, proposing, planning and developing ideas;
  • Develop their capability to create high quality products through combining their designing and making skills with knowledge and understanding;
  • Explore values about/attitudes to the made world and how we live and work within it;
  • Develop an understanding of technological processes, products, and their manufacture, and their contribution to our society;
  • Enjoy exercising and developing the manipulative skills that realising ideas entails
  • To develop a critical awareness of both their own and others’ responses to designs
