Design and Technology

Design and Technology at Chapel End Infant School and Early Years Centre

Design and technology enables children to think creatively when solving problems. The children are encouraged to use a range of media, materials and their imaginations to work individually or as a team to work on projects. They will develop their skills when using a range tools and techniques to complete practical tasks.


Design and Technology encourages children to learn to think and intervene creatively to solve problems both as individuals and as members of a team.


When designing and making, the children are taught to select from and use a wider range of tools and equipment to perform practical tasks (for example, cutting, shaping, joining and finishing) accurately. Pupils learn to evaluate their ideas and products against their own design criteria and consider the views of others to improve their work. The children are also given opportunities to reflect upon and evaluate past and present designs, its uses and effectiveness and are encouraged to become innovators and risk-takers. They gain an understanding of the impact that past and present inventors, engineers and designers have on our lives today and the role Design and Technology has in our modern world.
