Design Technology
at The Wharton's Primary School

Design and Technology is about providing opportunity for children to use creativity and imagination to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems, considering their own and others' needs.


Making mistakes is a huge part of Design and Technology and integral to learning.


Children should also develop skills alongside the design process related to food technology, woodwork, sewing, moving mechanisms and more.


Each year group takes part in one Design and Technology topic per term focusing on food, textiles and structures/mechanisms.
