Design Technology

Children are encouraged to develop their skills across four broad areas: designing, making, evaluating and technical knowledge. They are given the opportunity to develop their skills in these areas through a range of practical tasks which encourage the development of more specific skills, such as selecting and using a wide range of materials and tools, selecting appropriate materials, drawing and making improvements.  Practical tasks also encourage the development of technical, creative and practical skills which children will require in order to perform everyday tasks, with increasing efficiency and confidence.  In addition, practical tasks will take place in a range of contexts, and also include cooking across both Key Stage One and Two.  Children will have the opportunity to handle and evaluate existing products.
