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.
