The focus of Design Technology is to prepare children to play an integral part in the development of tomorrow's manufactured world. Without DT, the future of the world's social and economic growth would almost certainly be affected. Our aim, therefore, is to motivate, excite and inspire the children to embrace the process of design and, at the same time, to exploit the possibilities afforded by modern technology.
We provide problem-solving experiences and challenges that are carefully structured to develop the children's creativity, perseverance and flexibility. This enables the children to become familiar with using specialised equipment and materials which, ultimately, will provide them with useful life skills. The children also learn to work both independently and in collaboration with others as they apply their scientific, mathematical, IT and artistic skills in a variety of design focused tasks.
All lessons take place in our specialist DT classroom.
