Design and technology is about making things that people want and that work well. Creating these things is hugely exciting; it is an inventive fun activity.
(James Dyson, Chairman, Dyson Ltd)
At Penruddock Primary we recognise the benefits of this subject to pupils personal effectiveness and their ability to succeed and get things done, we believe it increases perseverance and a willingness to see things through to the end as well as developing practical skills such as drawing and modelling as ways of developing a solution. In today’s rapidly changing world Design and Technology prepares learners to contribute to a world in which many jobs they will fill as an adult have yet to be invented.
Our Design and Technology curriculum is taught through a cross-curricular approach that encourages children to engage with and solve problems within the context of their learning and allowing them to apply their learning in real-life situations.
