Design & Technology
Design and Technology is taught either weekly or in blocks depending on the topic being covered. The topics are cross-curricular and have clear links to the creative curriculum. Skills are taught and refined explicitly. Many teachers choose to block the DT lessons so that the children can become immersed in the researching, designing and evaluating process. It allows for children to make clear connection between each process.
The children start school with different levels of prior knowledge and experiences. EYFS allows them to play and experiment with materials in a child led manner (junk modelling).
As a school, we endeavour to provide an education that inspires and is well rounded. The teaching of design and technology offers a diverse range of experiences and ensures that their education is well rounded.
