National Curriculum for Design and Technology
At Killamarsh Infant and Nursery School, Design and Technology is a practical and creative subject taught through cross curricular topics. We believe that our children are natural investigators, inventors and makers. We encourage their creativity and imagination to create simple products and promote the enjoyment and challenge in solving problems.
Children will have the opportunity to engage in the process of designing and making, acquire the skills to make products as well as evaluate and test their ideas. The children’s ‘final product’ is always personalised to them. Additionally, they will develop the life skills and gain knowledge associated with healthy living, food nutrition and cookery.
Design and Technology allows children to explore the designed and human made word that they live in and teaches them the practical skills and techniques to make a design come to life.
