Design and Technology

Statement of Intent

At Corfield C of E Infant School, we recognise the importance of Design and Technology and the role it has to play in preparing children for the developing world and encouraging them to become curious and creative problem-solvers, both as individuals and as part of a team.

We believe that evaluation is an integral part of the design process and allows children to adapt and improve their products. This is a key skill which they need throughout their life. Design and Technology also allows children to apply the knowledge and skills learned in other subjects, particularly Maths, Science, ICT and Art.

At Corfield C of E Infant School, children’s interests are captured through topic based learning, ensuring that cross curricular links are made, giving children motivation and meaning for their learning.

Children throughout the school are taught about cooking and nutrition in the curriculum, which enables them to make informed healthy eating choices. We believe teaching pupils to cook is an important part of promoting a whole school approach to health and wellbeing.
