Design and Technology (DT)
Design and Technology capability requires the children to combine their designing and making skills with knowledge and understanding, mostly from Art and Science, in order to design and make products. This capability will be develop through three types of activity.
Design and Make assignments will enable children to develop a product to meet a need, e.g. a Christmas decoration or Healthy sandwiches. Whilst, for example, learning how to use a saw effectively, the child will be engaged in a focused practical task. By exploring existing products, children can apply what they have learnt to a product of their own.
To achieve success with their products, the children will need to have a working knowledge of a range of materials. By the end of Key Stage Two, children should have had experience of each of these: resistant materials, textiles and food.
