Children learn the skills of designing and modelling to develop an understanding of how materials can be used in various ways. During the design stage, we look at examples of technology in everyday life. We teach them how to combine and join materials to produce a final project, fit for purpose, and to evaluate its effectiveness. These projects are linked to other areas of the curriculum and are based on a progressive programme of skills teaching. Food technology is included in this area.
