Design and Technology


In Key Stage 1 children are encouraged to draw on their own experiences and ingenuity, to solve the practical problems they may encounter.


The Teachers work closely with each child in their classroom, to fully develop each child's potential and confidence. The materials available enable them to perfect their skills, and assess the suitability of the material for the task in hand.


The children explore the mechanics of movement in different forms, and have the opportunity to design and apply this through their own practical creations. Various materials are investigated, and the children design and create their own 3D models, thereby discovering the limitations of the individual materials and their combined strengths or weaknesses.
