Design and Technology at Fircroft
In Design and Technology, children are taught about the processes involved in designing and making a product. They are taught the technical knowledge and understanding they need to design, make, and evaluate their work. Pupils use their evaluations for ongoing modifications and improvements. Pupils are taught how to use a range of tools and techniques as they progress throughout the school and to learn in a variety of contexts, including outdoors and during workshops.
Whilst D&T is taught as an individual subject, strong cross curricular links are made ensuring that our termly projects serve to enrich the children's learning within other subjects and topics being taught that term.
