Design and Technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. Using creativity and imagination, pupils design and make products that solve real and relevant problems. Children acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and enhance their technical skills. Pupils learn to become more resourceful, innovative and enterprising. They learn to evaluate past and present designs, and develop a critical understanding.

At Sherington, we aim to develop pupils creative, technical and practical skills through cross-curricular learning. Each term children undertake a unit of Design Technology, in which they design and make high quality prototypes and products. As part of their work with food, pupils will be taught how to cook and apply the principles of nutrition. Instilling a love of cooking in pupils that will provide them with a crucial life skill.
