Design and Technology

Our vision for 'Design and Technology'
A Design and Technology curriculum that encompasses a range of skills and builds upon that of the previous year.
A well-equipped and informed teaching team delivering the Design and Technology curriculum to pupils.
Fun and engaging lessons that spark a love of design in all pupils.
Design and Technology gives children the opportunity to develop skill, knowledge and understanding of designing and making functional products.
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.
Ultimately, children learn how to take risks, become resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens, whilst utilising a range of communicative skills to express and present their designs.

Here is the 'Design and Technology' Intent 

At South Petherwin, we feel it is vital to nurture creativity and innovation through design by exploring the designed and made world in which we all live and work.

All pupils, from EYFS to Year 6, participate in engaging, purposeful and rich Design and Technology lessons. The children are encouraged to design, construct and evaluate models according to a brief. The level of design criteria, practical skills required and the evaluative process used progresses as the children move through the school. Children are given the opportunity to understand nutrition and learn how to cook.
