Design and Technology
At Newchurch Primary School we encourage our Newchurch robins to use their creativity and imagination, to design and make products that solve problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. 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.
We aim to, wherever possible, link work to other subjects such as mathematics, science, computing and art. Children are given the opportunity to develop their technical understanding, making skills, learn about design methods and investigate their environment and the materials around them.
At Newchurch, we aim to develop:
- Design skills
- Making skills
- Evaluation skills
- Technical knowledge appropriate to their year group
- Cooking and nutrition
