Design and Technology at Our Lady Star of the Sea
At Our Lady’s, Design and Technology provides children with an opportunity to tackle problems of a practical nature. The cross curricular nature of Design and Technology offers a setting for the children to apply knowledge and skills from a number of other subjects including art, language, maths and science. Skills are developed using tools in designing and making artefacts and food products with an emphasis on healthy living. Working with a variety of materials aims to help children learn important life skills. Children learn independently and in groups.
They learn to; co-operate, plan, design and make and evaluate their work. They learn to make their own decisions with help and encouragement.
