DESIGN AND TECHNOLOGY
DESIGN AND TECHNOLOGY INTENT STATEMENT
At Borrow Wood School we believe that design and technology is essential to prepare pupils to participate in tomorrow’s rapidly changing world. Teachers encourage children to develop their investigating, designing, making, and evaluating skills. Pupil’s design and make products that solve real need and relevant problems within a variety of contexts. They acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on other disciplines such as mathematics, computing, science, engineering, and art. Pupils learn to become resourceful, innovative, imaginative, and enterprising. As part of their work with food, pupils are taught how to cook and apply the principles of nutrition and healthy eating. Teachers instil a love of cooking in pupils as both an expression of human creativity and a crucial life skill that enables pupils to feed themselves and others affordably and well, now and in later life.
