DT, ‘our show off’ subject is greatly loved by all. DT brings learning to life and helps foster children’s creativity and innovation. It allows children to develop skills, knowledge and understanding of designing, and securely using a range of simple materials and tools to make quality functional products for particular purposes and users. We believe DT to be a motivating context for discovering both the core subjects – English, mathematics and science and other foundation subjects. DT additionally encourages children to explore vital issues such as sustainability and enterprise.
