Design and Technology allows children to solve problems and deisgn new and innovative products for different purposes and audiences. It develops children's skills and knowledge in design, structures, mechanisms, electrical control and a rangle of materials, including food. Design and Technology encourages children's creativity and allows them to think about the 'bigger picture' and important issues. The curriculum is designed to engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the skills to design, invent and create unique pieces of work. In addition, children develop a respect for the environment, for their own health and safety and that of others. They learn to appreciate the value of similarities and differences and learn to show tolerance. A variety of experiences teaches them to appreciate that all people – and their views – are equally important.
