Design and technology is aimed to inspire children to be creative and critical thinkers for the every changing world.
At Hanbury Primary School, Design and Technology lessons, use the product design cycle of idea sharing, creating and evaluating the past and present products. We explore the uses and impacts products may have on everyday life. This is enhanced by teaching the children technical understanding, designing and making skills all of which are needed to produce practical solutions to problems.
Design and Technology gives children the opportunity to become problems solvers, to trial and test ideas. Each design is purposeful with the aim to better the children’s skills and understanding in Textiles, Mechanisms, Structures, Food, Digital world, Electrical systems. Skills in which are embedded for lifelong learning.
Here at Hanbury Primary School, we encourage our children to be confident risk takers, when drafting designs, creating/modelling, and testing out products. Also to understand the process of evaluating their own work and the work of others. We encourage the children to give praise and support their peers by working closely in pairs and small groups.
Today’s children are tomorrow’s future!
