Design & Technology
The design and technology curriculum here at Bitterne CE Primary school encourages and builds upon a developing knowledge of tools, mechanical processes and different skills to extend and develop their ideas. As the national curriculum programme of study for design and technology is followed, the children will build upon new ideas and the work they have undertaken in Key Stage 1. As well as developing their technical knowledge, the children will have the opportunity to develop their design process, evaluation skills, and knowledge of health and nutrition through 2 or 3 main projects each year.
Throughout their work, children use an increasingly wide range of tools, mechanisms and materials (including food). They are taught how to work safely and an emphasis is placed on using time and materials efficiently and effectively. As the children move through the school they are encouraged to apply the skills and knowledge they have been taught to come up with increasingly creative solutions to problems.
