Design and Technology
St Francis CE Design and Technology Policy
Design and Technology provides our children with many opportunities to tackle practical problems. The cross curricular nature of Design and Technology offers a context for the children to apply knowledge and skills from a number of other subjects including art, language, maths and science. Skills are developed using tools and machines in designing and making artefacts, working models and food products with an emphasis on healthy living. Working with a variety of materials aims to help children learn important life skills and challenge their inquisitive and inventive ways of thinking. Children learn independently and in groups, learning to co-operate, plan, design and make and evaluate their work. They learn to make their own decisions with help and encouragement.
