Design and Technology

At Trinity Design and Technology is linked to the class topic. With clear links to the National Curriculum, creative, purposeful and meaningful activities are planned. The children design, make and evaluate their learning and develop their technical skills as they progress through the school. Through the study of Design and Technology they combine practical skills with an understanding of aesthetic, social and environmental issues, as well as functions and industrial practices.  This allows them to reflect on and evaluate present and past Design and Technology, its uses and impacts. 


The breadth of study in Key Stage One includes:


  • Cooking and nutrition
  • Textiles
