Design and Technology

Design and Technology is an inspiring, creative and practical subject encouraging discussion through sharing of ideas and evaluation of designs and products.

Using creativity, research and imagination, pupils design and make products that solve real and relevant problems and purposes, within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values.

At Queen’s Park Primary School children are taught to select and use appropriate tools safely and effectively to make a product.

In all areas of Design and Technology the children are encouraged to consider the effectiveness of their designs and requirements of the product. Every child will have the opportunity to learn and extend their understanding, experience and application in the use of technology, including I.C.T, in as wide a variety of situations as possible.

Children are encouraged to ask questions and explore their own lines of enquiry, take risks and view mistakes as a positive opportunity to deepen their understanding.

Children will research and discuss diversity and inclusivity with ideas of how to adaptions can be made for various needs and disabilities.
