At Parkgate, Design and Technology provides an opportunity for children to develop skills and knowledge in design, structures, mechanisms, electrical control and a range of materials, including food. We encourage children's creativity through practical challenges and provide opportunities for them to investigate, evaluate, design and make functional products – that work!
D&T is important to us because of the invaluable skills that it teaches that can be transferred and used across school subjects as well as in the real word.
PROBLEM SOLVING is at the heart of our DT!
