Design Technology

Design and technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. Using creativity and imagination, pupils design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. They acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. Pupils learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens. Through the evaluation of past and present design and technology, they develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world. High-quality design and technology education makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation. (National Curriculum 2014)

 
Due to our mixed year classes here at Bryn Offa CE Primary School, we have created a 4 year cycle for KS2 and a 2 year cycle for KS1. This allows the children to cover the National Curriculum objectives in detail. Class 1 and 2 follow the KS1 projects, whilst Class 3, 4 and 5 complete the KS2 projects.
