Design and Technology
It is the aim of Wheldon Infant School and Nursery to provide children with a rich and enjoyable experience of Design and Technology, in which they can acquire and develop their own designing and making skills. Design and Technology should provide children with a real-life context for learning. At Wheldon Infant School and Nursery we want to allow children to aspire to be more through creating opportunities for them in the wider world. Through the Design and Technology curriculum, children should be inspired by engineers, designers, chefs and architects to enable them to create a range of structures, mechanisms, textiles, electrical systems and food products with a real-life purpose. Design and Technology prepares children to take part in the development of tomorrow’s rapidly changing world. It encourages children to become autonomous and creative problem-solvers, both as individuals and as part of a team. Our objective is to ensure that there is progression of Design and Technology skills across the school which enables children to develop and practice their skills.
