Design and Technology develops children’s skills and knowledge in design, structures, mechanisms, electrical control and a range of materials, including food. D&T also encourages children's creativity and encourages them to think about important issues.

There are three core activities children engage with in Design and Technology:


  • Activities which involve investigating and evaluating existing products.
  • Focused practical tasks in which children develop particular aspects of knowledge and skills.
  • Designing and making activities in which children design and make 'something' for 'somebody' for 'some purpose'.
