Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Design and Technology

In our design and technology projects, children are encouraged to use their imagination and creativity to design, make and evaluate products.

In KS1, they learn the skills of cutting, shaping, joining and finishing. They explore and select different materials. For example, children might make moving toys or vehicles learning about levers, wheels and axles.

In KS2, children enhance designs by strengthening and reinforcing more complex structures, they learn how to use gears, pulleys and cams, and how to build electrical circuits and computer programming.
