At Falla Park we ensure that Design and Technology is hands on and a practical subject. We encourage children to be creative and use their imagination to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts. When developing Design and Technology key skills children will draw upon their knowledge of other subjects such as maths, science, computing and art.
Through Design and Technology children are encouraged to take risks become resourceful and learn from their mistakes. 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.
We ensure that children can:
- Develop the creative, technical and practical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently and to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world
- Build and apply a bank of knowledge, understanding and skills in order to design and make high-quality prototypes and products for a wide range of users
- Critique, evaluate and test their ideas and products and the work of others
- Apply the principles of nutrition and learn how to cook
