Design and Technology

Through Design Technology lessons at Coston, children explore, design, make and evaluate the creation of a range of products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts. Exciting and purposeful design briefs provide them with the chance to explore all areas of the Design and Technology National Curriculum such as materials and construction, textiles, cooking and nutrition.

Children investigate and evaluate existing products, thinking about their function, their audience, their design and appearance. Using a range of skills and processes, pupils learn to design their own objects. They are taught to use a range of tools and materials safely and to evaluate their own work and that of their peers.
