Design Technology

 

Children are nature born explorers- making links and experimenting with their ideas. We all learn through trial and error, and past experiences. At Herne, we believe it is important that we enable children to explore and develop these skills whilst designing and creating objects for a purpose. Whilst scaffolding their learning, our children are equipped with the confidence to make have a go, evaluate and make mistakes, gaining knowledge from them. Through the teaching of progressive skills involving designing, making and evaluating, the children will learn technical knowledge and gain an understanding of cooking and nutrition. These skills are developed across each year and built upon from prior learning. Here is an example of what that looks like, although some skills may be taught in a different term depending on topic.

The school environment allows children to develop their skills and creativity by ensuring constructional materials, tools and resources are readily available and independently accessed by all children, including those in the Nursery. Every child has access to these resources throughout the day particularly during our Learning Through Play sessions.
