Hatherleigh Community Primary School Caring about learning and learning to care

Design Technology

At Hatherleigh Community Primary School, through a variety of creative and practical activities, children will be taught the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to engage in the process of designing and making. Design and Technology activities will be taught in a variety of ways across the school, for example, in blocks of taught time, as part of a topic or in short skills based activities.

Children will get the opportunity to design purposeful functional products using a wide range of materials and components and to use a variety of different tools and equipment to perform practical tasks such as cutting, shaping, joining and finishing.

As part of their work with food, children will be taught how to cook and apply the principles of nutrition and healthy eating.

Design and Technology has relevance across the curriculum and links with other subjects, particularly Science, Art and Mathematics. Activities will be planned to ensure continuity and progression throughout the Key Stages.
