Design and Technology

DT is an inspiring and practical subject which is widely enjoyed by our children at Whitby Heath Primary School. Using creativity and imagination, pupils design and make products that solve real and relevant problems using a variety of techniques, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. They acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. Pupils learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful and innovative.

At Whitby Heath Primary School the children learn through the key topics mechanisms, structures, food, textiles, mechanical systems and electrical systems. DT is taught as a stand alone subject, with three units each year. Units are carefully chosen in conjunction with art topics to ensure full coverage of the National Curriculum in a funs and engaging way.
