Design and Technology

Our aim is to promote creative problem solving, curiosity, resilience and reflection through a variety of practical activities.  Children are taught knowledge, understanding and skills relating to construction materials, textiles, structures, mechanisms, electricity, computing and food. They are encouraged to reflect as they complete a task and make appropriate modifications as needed. 


Following the National Curriculum, Design Technology is planned in cross-curricular units where appropriate.  In the Holywell Curriculum, Design Technology has links with Computing, Science, Maths, Geography and History.  The Curriculum has been planned to ensure that there is a coverage of a range of materials, and progression in skills that are taught.  Throughout the Foundation Stage there are a plentiful opportunities to engage in Design Technology.  In Reception there are STEM afternoons, which include Design and Technology activities. Years 1 to 6 complete three units of work per year.  This always includes one unit on cooking and nutrition, because we believe that this is a valuable life skill.
