Design & Technology

During the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 Design & Technology is about developing children’s skills building on their early life skills.  Design & Technology offer the opportunity for children at Cottesbrooke:

·       to develop a knowledge and understanding of materials, components and structures

·       to develop focused, practical tasks for developing skills, techniques and knowledge, particularly those related to tools and materials

·       to give pupils a sense of achievement when they have worked through the designing and making processes and have a finished article

·       to instil a positive health and safety attitude

·       to develop imagination and the ability to use Design & Technology as a form of communication and expression.
