Design & Technology
At Bitterne CE Primary we aim to develop a good understanding of how things work. Through the design and technology programme we aim to provide children with the knowledge and skills for working with a wide range of materials to create with including clay, wood, fabric and food. As with art, we encourage the children to develop their own creative expression and personal identity within their work. We aim to continue to develop personal love, trust and forgiveness throughout the different DT units as well as demonstrating how our school values can be shown towards other creators, designers and inventors.
Throughout their time the children will gain an ever-increasing range of technical vocabulary as well as gain insight into how to correctly handle tools for sawing, different sewing techniques and how different mechanisms work. The children will get to experience a wide range of units which will provide them with an extensive bank of skills and knowledge. With food technology being a key part of DT, we also aim to develop life skills for our pupils as well as an understanding of different cooking methods and techniques.
