In Design and Technology, we aim to support our pupils to become designers through providing them with a range of opportunities to think, explore and problem solve in a real life context. Using pupils’ creativity and imagination, it allows them to design, make and evaluate products practically for a purpose. The subject draws on other areas of the pupils’ learning such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. It also develops children’s skills and knowledge of mechanisms, electrical control and of a range of materials. The pupils are given opportunities to reflect and evaluate on their own work and others and are encouraged to become innovators.
