Design and technology at Randwick

DT 2.jpg


At Randwick we believe that D&T should be an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. At our school, children will be taught how to use their imaginations to design and make products, which solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts considering the needs and wants of the intended audience. Our curriculum requires a broad range of knowledge drawn from other subjects such as mathematics, science, computing and art.

D&T helps children to learn how to take risks, become resourceful and innovative, as well as promoting enterprising opportunities.


Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

Design and Technology is found in different Early Learning Goals. The children in EYFS will develop their fine motor skills and expressive art and design whilst they explore food and the mechanical elements of D&T.

Throughout the year Owls have experiences designing, constructing, joining and adding detail, including with fabrics.   


How can I support my child at home?

At home, there are several different ways you can support your child with Design and Technology. These can be things such as planning and cooking the evening meal or making models with a function or purpose.  

There are number of different museums and events in the local area and beyond that support D&T thinking.

Cardiff Techniquest:

Stratford Park Museum:

Gloucestershire Steam Railway:


The children work through the stages of the design process in all elements of the DT curriculum: thinking about the purope and audidence of their product, testing and evaluating exisiting products, design (including computer aided design) making, improving and evluating their finished product.
