At Waterside Primary School, our Design and Technology curriculum enhances and strengthens children’s creativity. Children will develop skills needed to perform daily tasks confidently which will enable them to grow through learning and experience in an increasingly technological world. The curriculum stimulates imagination and provides practical hands-on experience. Through the Design and Technology curriculum, children will be inspired by engineers, designers, chefs and architects to enable them to design and create a range of structures, mechanisms, textiles, electrical systems and food products with a real-life purpose, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. Children will be given the opportunities to critique, evaluate and test their own and others’ products. Children will also learn how to cook, understanding and applying their knowledge of nutrition.
