Design and Technology provides the children at Somerford Primary School with an opportunity to tackle problems of a practical nature.
The cross curricular nature of Design and Technology offers meaningful contexts for the children to apply knowledge and skills across a variety of subjects including art, language, maths and science. These skills are developed using a variety of materials and tools in designing and making objects.
The separate element of Food and Nutrition encourages children to develop a range of cooking skills with an emphasis on healthy living. Children learn independently and within groups which encourages teamwork, planning, designing, creating and evaluating skills.
