Design Technology - Intent
Design and technology is taught as an inspiring and practical subject, linked to other areas of the curriculum where possible. The children are encouraged to look at existing products that fulfil a need and then design their own products to solve real and relevant problems, using their imagination and creativity. Risk taking is encouraged in design and technology, as well as being resourceful, innovative and enterprising. The children’s understanding in the way things work, food technology, how different materials can be used and evaluating and testing theirs and others' work are all skills that are developed through our design and technology teaching.
