Design Technology

At High View DT is explored in an engaging way, using stimulus and ideas relevant to our children. Different year groups learn skills ranging from textiles and sewing to food preparation and hygiene and build on these as they move through the school. 

 

Children learn about the 3 stages of creating a product:

 

  1. Developing, planning and communicating ideas. 
  2. Working with tools, equipment, materials and components to make quality products.
  3. Evaluating processes and products.

 

KS2 children also learn about how key individuals in DT have helped to shape the world and use computer-aided design.
