We aim to encourage children to learn and think about the uses and effects of past and present designs in a rapidly changing technological world.
They are helped to develop and communicate ideas through careful planning and investigations. Models are constructed using children’s own plans as a guide and they evaluate their finished product.
In Key Stage 1, emphasis is placed on using construction kits, ‘junk’ modelling materials, paper, straws, foil and card. Children explore food technology, designing menus and recipes, analysing food products and making their own.
