Design Technology at Westmoor Primary Information
Design Technology promotes the children’s natural interest in finding out how things work. It involves the identification of need or problem, proposing a solution, designing and making and then finally testing and modifying the result. The children develop skills such as problem solving, planning, decision making and evaluating. They consider the aesthetic qualities of their own work and that of others. The children undertake this work using a variety of tools and materials, from commercially produced kits to model making with junk materials. Technology work is not restricted to model making. It also includes sewing, food technology, using Technical Lego, designing and making usable products.
