We want to make Design Technology as engaging and as creative as possible at school to nurture and make our world future engineers thrive.
- Provide children with rich opportunities to develop their creative, technical and practical expertise.
- Provide opportunities to build and apply their knowledge, understanding and skill in order to make high- quality prototypes and products.
- Provide opportunities for children to critique, evaluate and test their ideas.
- Provide children with opportunity to learn how to cook and learn about nutrition.
In school we teach 3 blocks of Design Technology and 3 blocks of Art throughout each year.
