Design and Technology


At Pinewood we want children to be able to design, make and evaluate while having fun and enjoying the process. We try to link our DT teaching to our learning journeys and give children opportunities to work individually and collaboratively with others on purposeful projects. Skills are dependent on specific knowledge. A skill is the capacity to perform or discuss and in order to do this a deep body knowledge needs to be acquired and retained.
