Design & Technology

Design and Technology enables children to develop their creativity.  The subject is linked to aspects of Art, Science, History, Music and English where appropriate.  The children are taught to:


  • use research and develop designs
  • use a wide range of tools, materials and equipment to perform practical tasks
  • evaluate their ideas and products
  • understand the principles of a healthy diet and cook in a variety of predominantly savoury dishes using a range of cooking techniques


Design and Technology is taught within a set time-block rather than on a weekly basis.
