Design and Technology at Westwood
At Westwood Primary School, Design and Technology sits along other subjects as part of our Adventure. Class teachers develop activities which allow the children the chance to develop their skills in the key processes (design, create and evaluate) and apply them to projects that will further enhance their understanding of the broader curriculum. For example, children studying World War II learned about The Blitz and the need for air raid shelters. Exploring the need for them during this period in history, analyzing the mechanics their design and sourcing materials and plans to create their own (mini) working version. Finally then testing their effectiveness and evaluating their final piece of work.
