Where children come first


Design Technology


At Aylesham Primary School children are taught creatively to select and use appropriate tools safely and effectively to design and make products. They become resilient when evaluating their own work as well as the work of others. In all areas of Design and Technology, children consider the effectiveness of their designs, requirements of the product, also having the opportunities to demonstrate teamwork through the production of their work. All children will have the opportunity to deepen their understanding, knowledge, experience and application in the use of technology. Our aim is to teach children how to be designers across the curriculum and enable them to demonstrate these skills in many areas of learning.
