Design and technology

Design and technology is a practical subject which involves the children in designing and making products.  It embraces work with wood, textiles, food as well as graphics and art and design.

Children are encouraged to develop their knowledge and understanding of simple mechanisms and structures.  They learn how to investigate, assemble and disassemble products in order to discover how they work.  They also learn to evaluate their work and identify ways in which their designs may be improved.
