In D&T we encourage children to learn to think and intervene creatively to solve problems both as individuals and as members of a team. The children build and apply their developing knowledge, understanding and skills in order to design and make high-quality models and products using a variety of materials. Children are given opportunities to test their ideas and products and the work of others, evaluate it and apply elements to their own designs. We aim to develop their creative, technical and practical expertise to support them in being able to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world, through the use of iPad, laptops and programmable toys to name but a few. Children will begin to understand and apply the principles of nutrition and develop their understanding of healthy eating. As a part of this they will be provided with cooking experiences and will explore where food comes from.
