Design and technology prepares children to take part in the development of tomorrow’s rapidly changing world. Creative thinking encourages children to make positive changes to their quality of life. The subject encourages children to become autonomous 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 eventually making products and systems.
At St George’s we believe that learning is a change in long term memory. We believe that children learn best by having opportunities to revisit previous learning. Design and Technology is taught every term to ensure that children can fully immerse themselves and have opportunities to reflect and build on prior learning and skills.
