Design Technology, Cooking & Growing
‘Design is not just what it looks like and feels like.
Design is how it works.’
Through Design and Technology, the children are encouraged to identify, examine and solve practical problems and to make existing situations better. The children are encouraged to be inventive, using a range of materials and tools, thus developing, modifying and evaluating their ideas through a series of projects.
