Bolton School Junior Girls

Design Technology

Design Technology topics across the Key Stage are exciting, practical challenges that also promote valuable skills of planning, critical thinking and problem solving. Our school has a thriving Oracy programme, and these the skills are used in this subject in the important process of making decisions, trialling solutions, presenting ideas and evaluating outcomes.

In Design Technology we provide opportunities for each child to design, make and evaluate their final product. Group and independent work both play a major role. Supporting independence and allowing individuality is balanced with collaboration and peer support in generating ideas and constructively evaluating the success of each stage of the process.

The projects are varied in terms of the media and technology used and techniques employed. These are tailored to meet the needs and interests of our pupils and have meaningful links to the wider curriculum.

It opens your eyes to the things you can make
