DESIGN AND TECHNOLOGY
Design and Technology (D and T) at Parkside will:
Develop the children’s understanding of how technology has helped in the past,
present and how it will change for us in the future.
Provide opportunities for children to explore past and present designers and how
their inventions/products have revolutionised the everyday life we live in.
Allow the children to pose questions and solve problems both on an individual
and group basis.
Provide the children with the opportunity to design a product from different materials
(be it wood, textiles or even food), make a product and then evaluate the
effectiveness. In all cases the children will be shown how to use the specific tools
correctly and safely.
