Design & Technology

Colton - DT - 2023 (4)At Colton Primary School we aim for Design and Technology to equip children with usable skills for future life.

Children will design, make and evaluate products creatively and technically with a purpose using a wide variety of tools and materials. Through the study of Design and Technology children will draw upon knowledge from subjects, such as mathematics, science, computing and art. By exploring the man-made world and discussing how we live and work within it children will learn how to become innovative, resourceful and enterprising risk takers who can tackle real life problems. Children will understand and apply principles of nutrition and learn how to cook, preparing them for adult life and educating them on healthy eating. Whilst partaking in Design and Technology children will learn about health and safety and protective measures that need to be followed.
