Design and Technology prepares pupils to take part in the development of tomorrow’s rapidly changing world. Creative thinking encourages children to make positive changes to their quality of life. The subject encourages pupils to become autonomous and creative problem-solvers, both as individuals and as part of a team. It enables them to identify needs and opportunities and to respond by developing ideas and eventually making products and systems.
Through the study of Design and Technology, pupils combine practical skills with an understanding of aesthetic, social and environmental issues as well as functions and industrial practices. This allows them to reflect on and evaluate present and past Design and Technology, its uses and its impacts. Design and Technology helps all pupils to become discriminating and informed consumers and potential innovators.
The ‘Food and Nutrition’ unit teaches the importance of making healthy food choices. Pupils are taught to prepare and cook food safely in our fully equipped DT classroom.
