Design Technology provides the pupils at Ryhope Junior School with an opportunity to use their creativity and imagination to make products that solve real and relevant problems. The cross curricular nature of Design and Technology allows the children to acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and to apply skills from other subjects such as maths, science, computing and art.
The children learn the processes of design through research, planning, designing, making and evaluation.
The children learn independently and in groups, learning to co-operate, share ideas and critique and evaluate their own and each other’s work.
The children are encouraged to use a wide variety of tools, equipment and materials in their designs, enabling them to develop into resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens.
