Design and Technology

At its heart, Design and Technology (D&T) is designing something for somebody for some purpose.  This simple mantra underpins our approach to this inspiring and practical subject at Cantrell Primary School.  D&T as a discipline gives children the skills and knowledge to design and make relevant products within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values.  Children learn how products and systems are designed and manufactured to inform their own creations, as well as develop an understanding of sustainability and higher order skills such as problem-solving.
