Design & Technology

The aim of DT at Westacre is to set children on the path to becoming the designers and engineers of the future. We use a range of sophisticated design equipment such as electronics and robotics. Children learn about how key events and individuals in design and technology have shaped the world. DT lessons can be sorted into the following categories:


- Design

- Make

- Evaluate

- Technological Knowledge

- Cooking and Nutrition


In Year 5, children will create their own soups, build bird boxes and make their own Mayan ceramics. In Year 6, Westacre pupils make Greek scupltures, create their own bread and make bags for travelling. Our Year 7 pupils make their own trebuchets and fleece hats, as well as combining their DT skills with other subject areas in their end of year Enterprise project.
