DESIGN & TECHNOLOGY

 

Technology makes possibilities. Design makes solutions - John Maeda

Design and Technology is a practical subject. Through creativity and imagination, pupils are given the experience of designing, making, testing and evaluating products. Design and Technology encourages pupils to develop an understanding of daily life and the world they live in. They are given the opportunity to question and reflect on how and why things work within our increasingly technological world. Pupils develop their personal skills by problem solving and developing a knowledge of health and safety. They also develop social skills by working and planning independently and as a team. Pupils work co-operatively in pairs or groups and persevere when completing tasks. They develop self-motivation and self-evaluation, taking pride and respecting their own work and that of others.

Cooking and Nutrition also plays a part in Design and Technology in ensuring pupils are being taught life-long skills in preparing food and applying the principles of nutrition and healthy eating to daily life.
