Design and Technology


Design and Technology (DT)  at the Beacon develops children’s skills and knowledge in design, structures, mechanisms, electrical control, and a range of materials which includes food. DT encourages children's creativity and encourages them to think about a product's purpose and the process in which it takes to create a successful product.

DT gives children the opportunity to develop skills, knowledge and understanding of designing and making functional products. We feel 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.

DT allows children to add real life context to learning, combining skills learnt from other subjects such as Maths, English and Art and Design.
