Design & Technology

In Key Stage 1 and 2, Design and Technology is linked closely with work in other subjects such as Mathematics, Science and Art.

The children are encouraged to develop their designs and construction skills throughout the Preparatory School.

Great emphasis is placed upon health and safety and the children are taught how to use and store tools and equipment correctly.

Through Design and Technology, the children develop designing skills, including generating and developing ideas, clarifying a task, creating design proposals, communicating ideas, and planning and evaluating.

The topics covered throughout the Preparatory School range from good old fashioned ‘junk modelling’ to sewing, woodwork and cooking a variety of foods including chocolate logs for Christmas, designing sandwiches, and bread making.
