Design and Technology at Parklands


Here at Parklands, Design and Technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject.  We encourage children to solve problems creatively, both as individuals and as members of a team. Resilience is a key theme running through our DT curriculum, and the children are encouraged to become innovators and risk-takers.  We provide opportunities for children to use their creativity and imagination, and to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts. We also aim to make links to designs and designers throughout history, providing opportunities for children to critically reflect upon and evaluate their designs. We aim to link work to other disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. This gives learning purpose and relevance to the children.
