Design & Technology at Horfield is delivered through inspiring, rigorous and practical activities. Children are given opportunities to design and make products in order to solve real and relevant problems, taking account of their own and others' needs, wants and values. Their developing subject knowledge and references to maths, science, engineering, computing and art enable them to design and make high quality prototypes and products for a wide range of users. Innovation, risk-taking and resourcefulness are important qualities which enable children to develop a critical understanding of this subject and its impact on daily life and the wider world.
Children learn to evaluate past and present design and technology in order to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world.
