Design and Technology (DT)

The children love D&T projects. It is a very practical subject that is all about problem solving and answering questions based in a real context. Every project involves designing, making and evaluating a product, for an identified user with a purpose in mind.... and it must be functional. These skills are vital in life, especially the resilience to try again when things go wrong!

D&T is a real cross curricular subject, supporting, developing and enhancing many other areas of the curriculum, especially mathematics, literacy and art. 

To support D&T we use "Projects on a Page" and the children complete one D&T project each term, one of which will be food technology. Food technology is further enhanced during the school's annual "Healthy Week."
