DT - Design Technology
Our curriculum in DT aims to allow children to develop skills in a variety of areas throughout their time in primary school. Skills are built on each year, with all areas of design and technology being covered at least once between year 1 and year 6.
Children are taught how to make healthy food choices and how to use kitchen appliances and utensils independently and safely. Children are also taught how to use different mechanical systems (including electrical) to make products move for different purposes. Further to this, children are given the opportunity to research products and their target audience in order to make an appropriate product.
Evaluation is an important part of the subject and so is often linked to English skills.
