Design and Technology gives children the opportunity to develop skill, knowledge and understanding of designing and making functional products. We feel it is vital to nurture creativity and innovation through design, and by exploring the designed and made world in which we all live and work.

At Cleves we have redesigned our curriculum this year to make D&T a more relevant and exciting subject, developing curricular links where appropriate.
In our D&T lessons children explore everyday products then use their own skills and ideas to create their own work. They work together with their peers to evaluate and refine their products.
We have planned opportunities for children to work with crafts people and designers both in school and as part of educational visits.
