Design & Technology
Led by Mrs MacKellar
Design and technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. Using creativity and imagination, pupils design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. They acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. Pupils learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens. Through the evaluation of past and present design and technology, they develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world. High-quality design and technology education makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation.
"We have ‘crossed lessons’ to do our DT projects. They are good fun and we get to be creative plus use the knowledge we have already got." Seth Year 6
"We have to plan, draft and think about tools and equipment we need before we start. You can adapt your ideas if they aren’t working. Because you have planned you are more organised and are likely to get it right." Jemima Year 6
"I love DT and making thing as it’s really fun and I get to be creative." Adam Year 5
