Design & Technology (DT)

 

Design and technology at Myatt is all about creative problem solving, so is a fabulous vehicle for developing learning skills such as perseverance, resilience and team work. Our DT curriculum is structured to allow children to develop their creativity, imagination and practical skills as they design and make a wide range of products.

Children develop the technical and practical expertise for everyday life such as: hand and machine sewing; basic hygiene skills for food handling; basic cooking skills; use of hand tools such as saws, glue guns and vices; and evaluating the suitability of products for their purpose.

At Myatt we teach design and technology in a creative environment. Our children think, plan and create – and are enthusiastic about communicating their ideas. Many of our DT units are blocked, allowing children to spend sustained periods of time working on a significant project.
