At Flanderwell in design technology we focus not just on the end result, but the complete design, testing, making and evaluating process. Children are always given a real purpose for their creations, which have to fulfil given specifications and design briefs.
These opportunities, chosen to excite and enthuse our children, focus on many themes which include food, textiles, mechanisms, or mouldable materials. Final products are evaluated against the design briefs, so children have the opportunity to develop and improve their designs.
As with the curriculum area of art our key skills ensure that there is clear progression through the year groups, allowing children to become masters of their designs.
