Design and Technology

Subject Leader - Mr Parry

Design and technology is a valued part of the curriculum at Forefield Junior School, inspiring children through its practical elements. Using creativity and imagination, pupils design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. Children acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on other areas of the curriculum such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art.

Design and Technology aims to develop the creative, technical and practical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently and to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world. We want children to build and apply a wealth of knowledge, understanding and skills in order to design and make high quality prototypes and products for a wide range of uses. Lessons encourage pupils to critique, evaluate and test their ideas and products and the work of others.
