At St Bede’s we encourage the children to use their creativity and imagination to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems in a variety of contexts, considering their own and others needs, wants and values. Design and Technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. We aim to, wherever possible, link work to other curriculum areas such as maths, English, science, computing and art. The children are also given opportunities to reflect upon and evaluate past and present design technology, its uses and effectiveness and are encouraged to become innovators and risk takers. Children learn how to take risk, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens. Throughout the evaluation of past and present design and technology, they develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world.
