Design and Technology
We want the children at South Green Infant and Nursery School, to develop their imagination, their critical thinking and their understanding of the world around them through their love of Design and Technology. We aim for our children to question and think innovatively about the world around them in order to design and develop their own products with a purpose in mind. Children will build and apply the knowledge and skills needed to design high quality products, which they will test and refine. They are given the opportunity to understand nutrition and learn how to cook and use equipment safely. Our Design and Technology curriculum requires children to draw on skills within Mathematics, Art, Science and Computing, which is reinforced through a whole-school science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) week. Children will deepen their understanding and independence within all of these subject areas during their Design and Technology lessons.
Children are given regular opportunities to develop their understanding of the technological world. We will evaluate past and present design technology and the ways these have influenced modern society. This allows our children to have a more critical approach to their own designs and creations – learning from the past to influence the future.
