Design And Technology
Design and Technology
Design and Technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. At Oxclose Primary Academy, pupils use creativity and imagination to design and make products to solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts. The children are given the opportunity to draw on their knowledge of Maths, Science and Art. Where possible, Design and Technology is taught through History and Geography, allowing the children to have a focus and purpose for their designs.
In this subject, pupils learn to take risks and become resourceful and innovative. Through the evaluation of past and present Design Technology, the children develop their understanding of its impact on their daily life.
In this subject, the pupils at Oxclose Primary Academy also gain an understanding of the principles of nutrition and apply this when they learn how to cook.
