Design and Technology

At Newchurch Primary School we believe that Design and Technology encourages pupils to learn to think and intervene creatively to solve problems both as individuals and as members of a team. Children develop technical understanding and making skills, learn about design methods and investigate their environment and the materials around them. 

The children in Year 5 and 6 work with Vicky Tyrell, a DT and Art specialist, to develop their units of work.

At Newchurch, we aim to develop:

  • Design skills
  • Making skills
  • Evaluation skills
  • Technical knowledge appropriate to their year group
  • Cooking and nutrition
