Design & Food Technology

At Knights Primary, pupils develop their curiosity, creativity and problem solving skills through our inspiring Design Technology curriculum. Pupils learn how design technology impacts all aspects of our lives and develop their critical thinking as future designers. Pupils design, make and evaluate purposeful, functional products that help them perceive themselves as empowered citizens in coming up with creative solutions to challenges linked to the world they live in. Pupils work individually and collaboratively to create and evaluate, becoming confident communicators as they explore their ideas. We believe cooking is a life skill and opportunities to learn culinary skills are taught discretely and cross-curricular opportunities are also encouraged. Children link their knowledge of food technology with PE, science and RSHE and understand that nutrition is pivotal to wellbeing.
