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 within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. They acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. Pupils learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens. Through the evaluation of past and present design and technology, they develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world. High-quality design and technology education makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation.

At Halebank C E Primary we have chosen Cornerstones Maestro to support us in delivering a robust, inclusive, broad, balanced and sequential curriculum. We look for every opportunity to enhance our learning by making cross curricular links, inviting guests in to speak to the children, arranging trips and entering or creating competitions. Next year our children in Year 5 and 6 will be taking a look at careers open to them through their interest in DT.
