Design and Technology

Design and Technology at The Duke of Bedford


At the Duke of Bedford Primary School we intend Design and Technology to be creative and practical, providing children with the chance to problem solve and develop their own creative ideas as individuals and as part of a team. We aim to provide our children with the opportunity to use their imagination to design and make products within a variety of contexts, to provide motivation and meaning to their learning. Exploration and practical experiences of mechanisms, textiles, food technology, structures, and electrical systems will inspire our children to be chefs, engineers, sculptors, carpenters, designers and architects. Our children will leave The Duke of Bedford Primary school with life long skills that they can expand on and apply to future learning.

In all of our Design and Technology half termly units of work, the children follow the same cyclical process to ensure all elements of the Design Technology national curriculum are covered, revisited and embedded.
