Design & Technology

Design and technology (DT) prepares children to take part in the development of tomorrow’s rapidly changing world. Creative thinking encourages them to make positive changes to their quality of life. DT 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 Witchampton CofE First School, we belive through the study of design and technology children learn to combine practical skills with an understanding of aesthetic, social and environmental issues, as well as functions and industrial practices. This allows them to reflect on and evaluate present and past design and technology, its uses and its impacts. DT helps all children to become discriminating and informed consumers and potential innovators.
