Design and Technology is now more linked to science and ICT and put simply it comprises designing and making something for somebody for some purpose. It has two strands, Designing and Making and Cooking and Nutrition.
Designing and making: We teach the children design in KS1 and in KS2, using annotated sketches, cross section and exploded diagrams. The children in KS2 investigate the key events in design development and look at individual designers. The children also use computer aided design (Tech soft) to understand the concept of a system.
Cooking and nutrition: Throughout the school we look at the principles of a healthy and varied diet. In KS1 we look at where food comes from and in KS2 we look at seasonality and how ingredients are grown, reared, caught and processed. Throughout school we get the children involved in cooking various healthy dishes and using utensils
