DESIGN AND TECHNOLOGY
We follow the National Curriculum for Design and Technology. The children are encouraged to identify, examine and solve practical problems and to make existing situations better. They are encouraged to be inventive, using a range of materials and tools, developing, modifying and evaluating their ideas, with an iterative approach, through a series of projects. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically, developing a more rigorous understanding of art and design, which demonstrates knowledge of how art and design has reflected and shaped our history and contributed to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.
