Design and Technology (DT) prepares children to participate in a world of rapidly changing technology. Everything we use in our day-to-day lives – from forks to food and hats to houses – has been designed. Finding out more about how these objects are designed and made helps children to make sense of the world around them. By designing and making their own products, children learn: practical skills, like finding out how things work and making products that are useful and look good and ways of thinking and working, like coming up with ideas, solving problems and working as a team. DT includes Food Technology - learning about making food for a healthy lifestyle. DT teaching is linked to the topics taught each half term.
