Design and Technology

At Mayhill, DT provides children with a real life context for learning. We believe design and technology is about designing and making products for a specific user and purpose. We want to allow children to aspire to link sustainability into their learning creating opportunities for them in the wider world.

Through the DT curriculum, children will be inspired by engineers (STEM Engineers, RAF and RMS), chefs and architects to enable them to create a range of structures, mechanisms, textiles, electrical systems and food products with a real life purpose. Children are provided with opportunities to refine and evaluate their learning and outcomes. Cross curricular links are strong, allowing all children to make contextual links between different subjects.
