Meadowdale Primary School


Design and Technology

Technology provides pupils with the opportunity to develop logical thinking alongside practical construction skills. A wide variety of activities enable the children to design, make and evaluate a product. They will work with a range of materials and components and learn to use various tools, materials and techniques. Tasks may include making a fruit salad, designing and making a puppet or making a scale model. Children in Upper KS2 have the opportunity to go to a technology day at Robert Smyth Academy.
