Design and Technology 

  DT learning at Queensbridge challenges children to think creatively and use their curiosity and knowledge to create products that fulfil a real-world need.

Through first-hand experience children progressively build their experience from Early Years to Year 6 working in four main area: structures, textiles, mechanisms and food. In upper Key Stage 2 children also begin to integrate electrical and digital systems into these strands of learning. 

 DT learning is broken into four types of lessons: designing, making, technical skills and evaluating.


 Through using this structured approach, children have opportunities to build on their prior learning and develop a thoughtful approach that recognises the importance of experimentation and mistakes in creative thinking. 

Children at Queensbridge love the technical challenges of DT as well as the excitement of developing and creating products. Through group work they also learn the value of collaboration.
