Design Technology provides the opportunity for children to use creativity and imagination to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems, considering their own and other’s needs. Making mistakes is a huge part of Design and Technology and is integral to learning and essential to learning.
At West End Primary School, we value Design Technology as an inspiring and rigorous and practical subject. We encourage the children to bring their ideas and designs to life using their ever-developing skills and problem solving.
Throughout the curriculum, we expose the children to the wider world, allowing them to see how products have been developed over time and the importance designers and inventors have on influencing new products in today’s society. We are working in partnership with Lancaster University on the process of design in the real world.
