Design and Technology at St Oswald’s Primary School
Design Technology is a practical subject, which encourages students to recognise that Design and Technology are forces that changes the world in which we live.
At St Oswald’s Primary school, we understand that Design and Technology gives children the opportunity to develop skill, knowledge and understanding of designing and making functional products. It is vital to nurture creativity and innovation through design, and by exploring the designed and made world in which we all live and work.
We believe that Design and Technology is an important part of our children’s education. It enables them to use and develop their observational skills, develop a curiosity and technological approach to solving problems as well as instil a context related purpose to their planning, making and evaluating. Children are given a purpose for their designing from a perceived need in their own environment, which only serves to engage, excite and inspire the children further.
