    DT – Statement of Intent


    Design and technology prepares children at Crawshawbooth Primary School to take part in the development of tomorrow’s rapidly changing world. The subject encourages children to become autonomous and creative problem-solvers, both as individuals and as part of a team. It enables them to identify needs and opportunities and to respond by developing ideas, and eventually making products and systems. Through the study of design and technology they combine practical skills with an understanding of aesthetic, social and environmental issues, as well as of functions and industrial practices. This allows them to reflect on and evaluate present and past design and technology, its uses and its impacts. Design and technology helps all children to become discriminating and informed consumers and potential innovators. Children will also learn to understand and apply the principles of nutrition and learn how to cook.
