Swaffield School

Design & Technology

Design and Technology is about providing opportunities for children to use creativity and imagination to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems, considering their own and others' needs.

Children should also develop skills alongside the design process related to food technology, woodwork, sewing, moving mechanisms and more.

Each year group takes part in one Design and Technology topic per term and one of these topics is food related. This may be linked with other subjects or also have a Design focus. Cooking is enhanced further through special weeks like International Week.
