Design & Technology
Through the teaching of Design and Technology at Hove Juniors, we provide children with opportunities to show critical and imaginative thinking; skills which can be transferred across the curriculum. By planning a range of real life projects with clear design briefs and precise specifications, we offer children the chance to work creatively, while thinking about the function, appeal and purpose of the product they have been asked to make.
Through the evaluation of past and present designs, they develop a critical understanding of the impact that these products have on daily life and the wider world, allowing them to consider such aspects in their own design process.
We want our children to have a clear understanding of the process that is involved in designing and making, with the needs of a consumer in mind. In turn, children are then confident in selecting appropriate tools for the building and creating of their own product, whether this be alone or within a larger group.
