Design and Technology (DT)

At Tree Tops we love designing and creating in 2D and 3D. This aspect of the curriculum is strongly linked to other subjects and we strive to reflect and respond to the brilliant ideas that the children have to create an exciting and enabling learning environment.

By using a variety of materials and tools the children are given frequent opportunities to increase their skills and experience and gain knowledge of what is needed to make successful products.

The pupils make structures, models, cards, games, prototypes etc and are encouraged to design and plan their work and develop skills such as cutting, shaping, joining and combining.

The children are given opportunities to investigate, disassemble and evaluate simple products.  As they work through the Primary Curriculum they learn to evaluate their work and consider ways of improving it.
