Design Technology

At Hurst Drive Primary School, Design Technology is taught termly in KS1 and KS2. In Reception, the children are given many opportunities to develop a range of practical Design and Technology skills through our half termly topics that are embedded in the Understanding the World section of the EYFS curriculum.


Design and Technology is a practical subject which involves the children designing and making products. It embraces work with wood, textiles, food and mechanics as well as graphic design. Design and Technology not only develops the children's life skills through teaching the children how to investigate, assemble and disassemble products in order to discover how they work but also use their knowledge from other subjects such as maths and science. 


We look forward to sharing many of the exciting learning opportunities with you on our school Facebook page.
