Fairfield Park Lower School

Design & Technology

At Fairfield Park Lower School, we value Design Technology. WE ARE DESIGNERS and TECHNOLOGISTS!

Design and technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject.

Using creativity and imagination, pupils design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values.

They acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. Pupils learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens.

They are taught basic cooking skills and make a variety of dishes, both savoury and sweet.  Skills are taught progressively to ensure that all children are able to learn and practice in order to develop as they move through the school.

Through the evaluation of past and present design and technology, they develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world.
