Design and Technology enables the children to represent their ideas and thoughts through planning and constructing models, products and investigations.
Through the use of Construction kits and ‘junk’ modelling materials the children can apply what they have learnt about materials in original ways, thinking about purposes. Explaining and evaluating their designs fosters language skills and collaborative activities are encouraged.
Skills progress from the Early Years, where children develop and apply their creative and physical skills when cutting and joining, to sewing materials in Key Stage 2.
During Healthy Mind, Healthy Body work the children explore Food technology, creating menus, preparing foods and analysing food products for their nutritional value.
