Design Technology involves investigating and making from first hand observations and imagination. Children try out tools and techniques using a wide range of natural and man-made materials.
Part of the process is to plan, and then review saying what they think about their creation, and if there is anything they would do differently next time.
We also encourage the children to compare their work with the work of artists, crafts people and designers in different times and culture by finding similarities and differences.
Sketchbooks are used to jot down ideas and plans.
DT sometimes means working on your own, and sometimes collaborating with others on different projects. Whatever we do in DT we make it fun and thought provoking!
