Design & Technology

Design and Technology at Wheatlands Primary School prepares the children to take part in the development of today’s rapidly changing world. The subject encourages children to become independent and creative problem-solvers, both as individuals and as part of a team. It enables them to identify needs and opportunities and to respond by developing ideas and making products and systems. Prior to design there is often scope for research and discussion of the problem and identification of possible solutions. Testing, modification and evaluation of the solution is an important part of the learning process.

Design and Technology projects include leaning skills such as textiles, food, electrical, structures or mechanisms progressing throughout the whole school. All lessons are linked to the National Curriculum

These are the ‘end points’ for each year group that we expect all children to be able to achieve
