Learning Together, Growing Stronger.

Design and Technology

Our D and T vision is to creatively design and make products that solve real and relevant problems.



Design and Technology is about providing opportunity for children to use creativity and imagination to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems, considering their own and others' needs. 

Making mistakes is a huge part of Design and Technology and integral to learning.


Children should also develop skills alongside the design process related to  food technology, woodwork, sewing, moving mechanisms and more.


Each year group takes part in one Design and Technology topic per term and one of these topics is food related. Food technology and cooking skills are also taught one or two other times throughout the year. This may be linked with other subjects or also have a Design focus. Cooking is enhanced further through  other special weeks like International Week or Health Week..
