Design and Technology

Design and Technology aims to prepare children to take part in the development of tomorrow’s rapidly changing, increasingly technological world. We encourage children to take part in challenging problem solving activities that enable them to think creatively, both collaboratively and as individuals. Taking part in Primary Engineer days has provided children with fantastic opportunities to utilise their knowledge and skills in Design and Technology.


Throughout the year, children also have excellent opportunities to learn about food and nutrition. This is often linked to whole school celebrations such as World Week and Languages Day, as well as class topics which have previously included an extravagant Roman banquet!   Children have access to a well equipped kitchen area where they have opportunities to apply the principles of nutrition to their cooking as well as learn about safety and hygienic practice. Design and Technology is a fun and exciting subject which allows the children to express themselves and their ever inventive ideas!
