Design and Technology

Mr S Thomas



Design and Technology involves pupils being engaged in practical activities, which combine designing and making. The design process and developing pupils’ creativity is at the heart of the subject. The projects undertaken provide opportunities for pupils to extend their knowledge and understanding of materials and components, systems and control, and structures. 

Pupils complete a wide range of projects, which focus on resistant materials (wood, manufactured boards and plastics), textiles and food. In resistant materials, the projects range from designing and making an acrylic key ring in Year 5, to creating a LED torch in Year 8. In Food and Textiles, projects include designing and making a hot pot holder in Year 5, to creating pizzas and ski hats in Year 8.
