Design and Technology
Design and Technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject which has a vital role in contributing to a balanced curriculum and creating the problem solvers of the future.
At Heather, we want our pupils to be well equipped to deal with tomorrows rapidly changing world by developing a range of ideas and by making products and systems that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. We aim to, wherever possible, link work to other areas of the curriculum such as mathematics, science, computing and art. The children are also given opportunities to explore, reflect upon and evaluate past and present design technology gaining a better understanding of how technology can improve our daily life and the wider world.
