Design & Technology
The children are encouraged to develop their design and technology skills through assignments that require them to make products using a range of materials and components. Design and Technology is cross-curricular, giving the children opportunities to develop and practise particular skills within familiar contexts. Children are taught techniques and rules for handling equipment correctly and they experience a wide range of materials. They are encouraged to plan and discuss their ideas with others, to work safely and independently, to apply learning from other areas of the curriculum and to evaluate their work as it develops.
