Design Technology at Queen's Drive Infant School

Vision - Encourage and develop creativity, problem solving, planning and evaluation skills

Our children CAN be inventors, chefs or carpenters! The topics that the children experience have been crafted to inspire a love of Design and Technology. The children have hands on, practical experience of designing, making their own products. They enjoy following recipes and learning cooking skills to make a variety of foods. 

By end the end of KS1, children are expected to design and make a product for a purpose e.g. a bridge, home, vehicle or diorama (scene with moving parts) and to have secured skills for joining a range of materials, making a stable structure and creating a moving mechanism.
