D & T

Our children are encouraged to identify, explore and solve practical problems through a variety of exciting cross-curricular projects. For example, in Year 2 the children designed, made and evaluated lighthouses with a simple pulley system as part of a topic on the book 'The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch'.

The children are encouraged to use a wide range of materials, tools and techniques, including everyday equipment such as scissors, construction kits and cooking equipment. We also have a Design Technology trolley which holds specialist equipment such as hammers, saws and woodwork materials. The children are taught how to use the equipment safely and for a purpose.

Throughout the year, we have whole school 'design and make' projects which the children are challenged to complete at home. These will be advertised during the year so keep a look out for them!
