Design and technology provides opportunity for the children to investigate familiar objects around them. They explore how things work, what they are used for and the needs of people who use them.
Children have the opportunity to develop a range of practical skills across both Key Stages working with different materials including fixing and joining, measuring and cutting, assembling, applying and a range of finishing techniques. Children are encouraged to design and make their own products and learn to evaluate them suggesting ways in which their work could be improved.
Design and Technology provides us with opportunities to make links with other areas of the curriculum such as science, literacy and maths.
