We are aware of living in a technological age and therefore aim to present our pupils, from a very early age, with problem-solving activities utilising their natural creativity. We follow the process of planning, designing, building, testing and evaluating so that learning derives equally from all outcomes. We work with a wide range of materials commonly found in our daily lives and encourage our pupils to make their own choices about which are best suited for a task.
They acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciples such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. Through the evaluation of past and present design and technology, they develop critical understanding of the impact on daily life and the wider world. They experience using different tools, skills and techniques to produce an end product. Children will learn where food comes from and will extend their knowledge of the principles of a healthy and varied diet. The children will have regular opportunities to experience cooking and food preparation.
