Design and Technology
Design and Technology at Eastwood Village Primary School
In our school the study of design technology is valued as a way for children to develop valuable life skills, preparing them for the future. Children are taught specific skills through a variety of projects each term as set out in the curriculum map for each year group. Skills are re-visited throughout the year to ensure children’s knowledge is secure.
The children are encouraged and supported to challenge themselves and increase their technical vocabulary and develop their knowledge of mechanisms, structure and forces so that they can explain how their products work. Their innovative ideas are shared weekly during work share assembly and throughout the year during DT workshops.
