From marble mazes and FM radios to pop-up books and model fairground rides, in design technology pupils use their imaginations to express their ideas and develop practical skills to design and build their own prototypes and products.
The areas we cover are: resistant materials, graphics, electronics systems and control mechanisms. Throughout the creative process children draw on disciplines such as maths, science, engineering, computing, animation and art. They are encouraged to use their weekly design and technology lessons to solve everyday problems and evaluate past and present design and technology to develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world. In our newly refitted work room, pupils learn how to assess and take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens.
