Design and Technology

We have a new, exciting scheme of work, to help support the teaching and learning of Design and Technology. We are very excited to start teaching the exciting lessons with your child smiley

 

There are five areas of Design and Technology:

- Structures

- Mechanisms 

Cooking and Nutrition 

- Textiles 

- Electrical Systems (KS2 only)

 

We can't wait to share some of the children's work on our website!

Home Learning Ideas

 

Cooking and Nutrition - Get your child involved with cooking and baking. Allow them to measure out ingredients and discuss different healthy and unhealthy foods. Discuss where food comes from etc.

 

Structures - Design and build structures with junk modelling resources, for example a house. Discuss the different materials and their properties. 

 

Textiles - Allow your child to help you sew and make something out of fabric together. For example make a piece of clothing for a toy.

 

You can find some more examples on the following website:
