Design Technology

Being creative does not always come naturally to pupils. It is our job to try and get children interested in designing, creating and evaluating their work. Working from home allows the children to work at their own speed using resources that can be found around the house.


Many of the links below will guide your child through the process of making a range of items. Some will be easier than others, but it will be good to show perseverance and have a go! Remember you can send in photos of things that you have made at home to your class teacher.
