Design and Technology

Design and Technology is a practical subject that develops children’s capabilities to design and make products that not only work well, but that also respond to identified needs. D&T shows how products are created for a real context and situation and, in meeting the identified needs; it develops the skills, knowledge and understanding of our children.

 

D&T involves children in drawing upon the knowledge and skills from other curriculum areas, particularly from science, mathematics, computing and art.

The 2014 national curriculum for design and technology aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • develop the creative, technical and practical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently and to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world;
  • build and apply a repertoire of knowledge, understanding and skills in order to design and make high-quality prototypes and products for a wide range of users;
  • critique, evaluate and test their ideas and products and the work of others;
  • understand and apply the principles of nutrition and learn how to cook.
