Design Technology At Belmont Cheveley Park Primary School, we aim to provide our children with an opportunity to tackle problems of a practical nature.  The cross curricular nature of Design and Technology offers a setting for the children to apply knowledge and skills from a number of other subjects including art, language, maths, computing and science. Our intent is that skills are developed using tools and materials in designing and making textiles, construction and food products with an emphasis on healthy living.  These skills are built upon over each year group and are deepened as the children move through school.  Regular opportunities are given to develop the children’s understanding of the technical world, evaluating past and present design and technology and the ways that these have influenced modern society.  This will allow our children to have a more critical approach to their own designs and creations.  Working with a variety of materials aims to help children learn important life skills. Children learn independently and in groups, learning to co-operate, plan, design, make and evaluate their work. They learn to make their own decisions with help and encouragement.
