Subject: Design Technology (DT)

DT incorporates many traditional skills – cooking, model making, drawing, problem solving, observation and discussion. Teachers make appropriate links to the reading curriculum so that learning is purposeful and key ideas are cross fertilised appropriately. We equip our children with the skills of planning, designing, observation and evaluating so that they become effective problem solvers. In the ever-changing landscape of the careers market, it is crucial that our children learn to apply their basic skills of maths and literacy in topics such as design and technology. We aim to inspire our children to become the inventors and engineers of tomorrow.
