Design Technology AT DOWNSHALL KEY STAGE 1 AND 2

This subject is driven by the idea that children design and make something - a product - for a specific person, or persons, for a specific purpose. During the iterative design process, pupils will focus on one key skill: bread-making or building a working hydraulic system, for example.

Subject leader: Mr M. Monaghan
