Design Technology

At Chyngton we teach design technology so that children develop skills to solve real and relevant problems in a creative and practical way. They design, make, adapt and refine products with purpose and intent to meet an end user’s requirements demonstrating confidence and resilience through the design process.

This involves:

  • Evaluating existing products to inspire children’s own designs
  • Developing the ability to design, evaluate and improve children’s work using technical vocabulary
  • Developing the skills to solve problems that occur in everyday life, through practical experience of making products

The Continuous Design Technology Cycle applicable to all learning projects:

  • Explore / Evaluate (NB: Evaluation is usually a process, not a written outcome)
  • Design / Evaluate
  • Make / Evaluate
