Design and Technology

The purpose of design and technology at Foxhills Junior School is to prepare children for the developing world. The subject encourages children to become creative problem-solvers, both as individuals and as part of a team. Through the study of design and technology, they combine practical skills with an understanding of aesthetic, social and environmental issues. This subject is taught across all 4 year groups, serving as a leading subject in some projects and applied subjects in others. The skills are split up into 5 key areas: design, make, evaluate, technical knowledge and cooking and nutrition
