Design and Technology

Design and Technology aims to support children to take part in the development of tomorrow’s rapidly changing world.

There are now 2 themes for D&T –autonomous problem-solvers and creative problem-solvers.

To allow teachers the flexibility to deliver high-quality D&T lessons we teach through a theme, this allows teachers to make links with other areas in the curriculum.

We aim to provide opportunities to use the community as a resource for lessons. Parents and other visitors are welcomed into school to talk to children about aspects of this subject. Reference to the agricultural and horticultural nature of the county should be made when dealing with food topics and agricultural machinery viewed.

There seems to be more focus on preparing children for their ‘future life’ – We aim to ensure children are supported with the changing world and hope to be able to prepare them for their futures on aspects of food, designing and the different technologies.
