Design and Technology

Design and Technology is a practical subject which encourages children to design and make functional products. The D&T curriculum encompasses five areas: mechanisms, structures, textiles, electrical systems and cooking. Pupils use their learning from mathematics, science, computing and art to create useful and authentic products. The children are encouraged to work together to use their creativity and practical skills to solve real and relevant problems.

At Raynham, D&T is closely linked to topics in other subjects in order to enrich pupils’ learning and encourage them to consider the real-world applications of the knowledge and skills they develop at school.
