At Homerswood we aim to ensure that Design and Technology is planned and taught as an integral part of our topic work. Through our new curriculum, we aim to promote all pupils interest and understanding. We aim to teach pupils to design, select appropriate resources, and make products with increasing confidence. By teaching these skills we help to prepare pupils to participate in the development of tomorrow's rapidly changing world.
We will continue in to the second term of the academic year with more new design and technology skills to learn and teach. Remember to visit this page regularly to see updates about DT and celebrate the wonderful work the children create.

This term we shall be continuing to follow the Kapow design technology (DT) scheme of work.This follows a spiral curriculum where skills are learnt and developed each term and into each year. It is an exciting and fun scheme which reflects a clear progression of skills.
Children develop their creativity and imagination through a range of activities. They learn to investigate materials and control tools - from researching, planning and making a balanced meal to construction to creating electronic and mechanical systems.
