Design Technology

 

The beginnings of our design technology curriculum can be seen through the continuous provision opportunities provided in the EYFS where children create and construct. Moving into Key Stages 1 and 2 we develop this further by ensuring that our DT curriculum provides children with the opportunities to research, to experiment, to design, to make and to evaluate. Each year children undertake three design technology projects, one of which is food technology. Other projects involve textiles, woodwork, mechanisms and structure. Incorporated within some of these projects is the use of electronics and computer coding. Children are given opportunities to develop their skills, knowledge and understanding of a wide range of materials and equipment through practical activities in a safe and controlled environment.
