Design and technology is an inspiring, and practical subject. Using creativity and imagination, children can design and make products that solve real and relevant problems for a variety of different situations.
It's a great opportunity for children to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens.
Before creating their own design, children have the opportunity to research and evaluate past and present design and technology, allowing them to see what works and what new products could be created.
Please see the attached files to see what is a requirement to be taught in primary schools as well as some fun activities you could do at home.
If you do make any of the products at home please bring them in to show me!
p.s. Wallace and Gromit's Cracking Contraptions is a great programme that shows off lots of different and inventive creations. Great for any inspiring inventor!
