Design Technology

 DT skills are developed progressively. The design process is taught and children learn to make a range of finished products in accordance with their designs e.g pop-up card or moving vehicle. First basic skills are taught e.g scissor control, then children use a range of equipment such as saws and hole drills with different materials e.g wood, felt. DT includes construction equipment.
