Design & Technology

Design and Technology at Cherbourg Primary School provides children with the opportunity to design and make products which solve problems in a variety of contexts using creativity and imagination. Strong cross-curricular links are made as children are encouraged to draw on the skills and knowledge they have learnt in other subject areas, such as Maths, Science

and IT, as well as specific DT skills. During their work, we encourage the children to be resourceful and innovative in an atmosphere conducive to risk taking. They are taught how to evaluate pre-made products and their own work saying what changes they made (or would make in future) and why.
