Design Technology!

 

At College Park Infant School, Design Technology is supporting, fostering, promoting and developing children’s knowledge and understanding of the world.

Children have lots of opportunities to solve problems, make decisions, experiement, predict, plan and question in many fun and exciting ways!

D.T Curriculum Week 2015

 

We had an amazing DT week this year, completing challenges that focused on our design, creative and evaluative skills!

We made inventions from junk modelling (with the help of our Dads, Grandads and Uncles!), designed and flew kites, created our own pop-up cards for Mothers Day and had a visit from pop-up book author Paul Stickland!

Moving Pictures

Children will make a simple moving picture relating to a studied text in class.
(Last year we made pictures showing 3 Billy Goats Gruff crossing the bridge, it was fun!)

 

Cooking

Children have the opportunity to bake different foods with the help of class helpers. Last year we made yummy food like shortbread and biscuits.

Junk Modelling

Children design and produce products to fit a purpose using given materials and items from the recycling bin! Last year they made modes of transport and their class animals.
