Design & Technology
In Design & Technology at The Brent we provide a range of opportunities for each child to design, make and evaluate a variety of products.
This also includes the designing, making and evaluating of different foods and understanding where food comes from.
Design & Technology encourages children to be curious and creative problem solvers, both as individuals and as part of a team. We provide children with the opportunity to use their creativity and imagination to become independent and resilient learners.
There are lots of exciting learning opportunities for children in Design and Technology this year.

The children have a variety of construction materials available for them to design and build their structures with in the EYFS and KS1 environments. We encourage children to design, create and explore with a purpose in mind. We provide the opportunity for them to create, problem solve and build on their independence through our child initiated approach to learning.
In KS2 children build upon the skills and knowledge they have already acquired. Design and Technology is a very practical subject and children have the opportunity to develop their skills through hands on experiences.
