At West Road we believe that design and technology is an inspiring and practical subject. It can be found in many of the objects children use each day and is a part of children’s
immediate experiences. We would like to encourage our children to learn to think creatively to solve problems both as individuals and as members of a team. We want our design and
technology curriculum to encourage our children to use their creativity and imagination in order to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts. They should be able to consider their own and others’ needs, wants and values. Design and Technology is, by nature, a creative and imaginative subject which develops an
understanding of knowledge, skills and independent learning. We seek to inspire children to think independently, innovatively and develop creative, procedural and technical understanding. The design and technology curriculum aims to provides children with opportunities to research, represent their ideas, explore and investigate, develop their ideas, make a product and evaluate their work.
