Design and Technology
Design and Technology at Burraton develops children’s skills and knowledge in design, structures, mechanisms, electrical control and a range of materials, including food. Using creativity and imagination, our children design and make products that solve real and relevant problems. Design and Technology offers our children the chance to apply and develop their knowledge in other areas such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. Our planning of Design and Technology across the key stages encourages exciting opportunities for social enterprise, often giving parents and the wider community the chance to become ‘consumers’ of the children’s completed design projects. Through Design and Technology children learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative and enterprising citizens.
