Technology Subject Overview

In design technology we aim to give the children an insight into the world of designing and making, and how it affects our lives.

We analyse products, recognise problems, identify changes we would like to make and through investigation develop design ideas. Alongside this we study the properties of materials and through focused practical tasks we develop skills and incorporate them in making the designs.

The materials we use include wood, plastic, mouldable materials, food, textiles, mechanical components, card and graphic media. Quality materials are provided for the children encouraging quality products. We provide opportunities for children to use computers to draw, design and model
their own ideas.

The children will be taught to use tools and equipment in an effective, safe and hygienic manner. Throughout all design and technology work the children are taught to work with consideration for others, to develop an ownership of their work, and extend their own criteria for a successful project.
