Inspiring all children to create & achieve

Design and Technology

At Earls Colne Primary School and Nursery, we believe that all children have a natural desire to create and make things and we encourage this through the teaching of Design and Technology.

In our D.T. lessons, all children learn how to evaluate existing products before designing and making their own versions using a range of different materials.

It is important that they are able to identify and solve problems using the knowledge and skills that they acquire.

Our children have the opportunity to: build structures; build a range of moving toys; create items with a range of textiles; and cook healthy food.

We aim to provide children with the practical skills that allow them to follow their ideas through and create items that they are proud of.
