Design TechnologyDT gives children the opportunity to develop skills, knowledge and understanding of design and make functional products. We feel that it is vital to nurture creativity and innovation through design and by exploring the designed and made world in which we all live and work.
Technical capability is essential for your child to live and work in a technical society and the designing and making of products is a desirable activity which can provide fulfilment throughout their life. We therefore aim to develop his or her skills, knowledge and understanding to work with a range of materials and components to make and evaluate products fit for a specific purpose. * Your child will develop an understanding of energy and structures and will become aware of the impact of technology and its contribution to the quality of life.
