Design Technology gives the pupils the opportunity to learn new skills for life, whether it be learning about different foods and how to cook them or working with tools and machinery to make different projects in a variety of materials.
Along with this is learning how to do practical things safely. Pupils will learn about safety in the workshop and the kitchen, including how to use tools correctly from scissors in KS1 to chisels in KS3. They will produce their own simple designs for a given brief and specification, before applying what they learn to create their design.
Design Technology helps develop independence and gives the satisfactory feeling of producing something yourself.
