Design & Technology


A Vision for Design Technology

Design Technology is enjoyable when children can be taught through a variety of creative and practical activities the skills needed to engage in an investigative process of designing and making. Where possible these experiences should be adaptable and practical, with a wider range of evaluative techniques used throughout a topic.


Design Technology is good when:

  • Children develop individual ideas.
  • Children use investigative skills to solve practical problems.
  • Children research and emulate successful projects.
  • Children develop a wide range of making, joining, fixing techniques.
  • Children develop their own problem solving strategies.
  • Children evaluate and learn from practical experiences.
