Design Technology

At Laurel Avenue Primary School Design Technology is taught through topics using a skills based curriculum.

Design technology helps children to become problem solvers through practical tasks, using creativity and imagination. Children take every day or familiar objects and investigate how they actually work and who they are really aimed at. Working with a variety of materials and through the new skills they learn, children get to design, make and evaluate a range of products from picture frames to moving toys, robots to musical instruments.

Design technology is a subject all children can enjoy individually or as part of a team and gives them the opportunity to become innovators.

All topics are reviewed yearly and changed to meet the interests of the children, the requirements of the curriculum and topical events or current issues in the wider world.

For further information on the current years’ topics please see individual Class areas.
