Design & Technology (D&T)
Subject Leader: Miss Mazgajczyk
The National Curriculum for Design and Technology (D&T) aims to ensure that all pupils:
Develop the creative, technical and practical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently and to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world.
- Build and apply a repertoire of knowledge, understanding and skills in order to design and make high-quality prototypes and products for a wide range of users.
- Critique, evaluate and test their ideas and products and the work of others.
- Understand and apply the principles of nutrition and learn how to cook.
Design and Technology (D&T) enables children to become independent thinkers, discovering how the world around them works and to see their purposeful ideas become useful tools for themselves and others. It sees them working by themselves and with others to make their creations even better by critically evaluating their ideas and products. D&T at Moon’s Moat First School will empower our children to try and test out their ideas, however big or small.
