Design and technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject that is taught in every year group at Highfield. Using creativity and imagination, pupils design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. Children acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. At Highfield children learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens. Through the evaluation of past and present design and technology, they develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world. Where possible, DT will always link to a topic being studied, enabling children to make links with their learning.
