Design and Technology

At Brunton we aim to develop creative, technical and practical skills through an engaging design and technology curriculum.

 We teach the children to:

  • Design purposeful products, make and evaluate them using their own initiative and think about how to improve them.
  • Develop their practical skills such as cutting, shaping and joining using the appropriate tools.
  • Investigate relevant designers and use them as inspiration
  • Learn the basics of cooking, nutrition and a healthy lifestyle
  • Talk about their likes and dislikes confidently
 

We encourage children to think like designers / engineers, be imaginative and decisive. As they progress through the school, our curriculum will enable them to become more confident and independent throughout the design and making process.
