Design & Technology

Design and Technology at Trinity


At Trinity, teaching and learning in DT is experienced holistically. Children are taught about the materials that are used for different purposes and are encouraged to consider their properties and suitability for purpose. They are introduced to an increasing variety of tools and techniques as they progress through the school from Nursery to Year 6 and are given opportunities to explore tools, materials and techniques before embarking on a considered and well-informed ‘design, make and evaluate’ process.  Children are introduced to and inspired by design and technology in the world around them and are taught how design, engineering, mechanics and technology are integral to daily life and progress. A key aspect of children’s learning in design and technology is the understanding of the purpose and usefulness of their products for different audiences and users.  Threaded through our teaching and learning in this subject at Trinity is the importance of sustainability and the impact of construction and production on the natural world and people of the world.
