Through our design and technology curriculum, children will learn about designing and making things that are useful to us in everyday life. Ideas will be generated from things that are already around us and children will learn about some designers who have influenced our world today. They will also consider how designs have changed over time. They will always follow the four step design process when completing their projects:-
Thinking - generating ideas for products and what they will do
Making - making the product in real life
Breaking - really looking at their product to check that it is fit for purpose and making improvements if needed
Repeat - evaluating and modifying their design
Children will always be mindful of the intended user and purpose of their product when engaging in a design and technology project.
