Design Technology

At St Helen's, we aim to provide a bespoke technology curriculum, allowing the children to explore the skills and knowledge needed in the process of designing and making.
Children are encouraged to design, make and evaluate, using a range of tools and materials, in a variety of different contexts. Children are challenged to identify, examine and solve practical problems to make existing situations better. Through the design, make, evaluate process, children also develop their technical knowledge, and are challenged to applying this throughout the process.
Within Cooking and Nutrition, children are taught the principles of a healthy diet, to understand where food comes from and to understand seasonality. They are also challenged to prepare and cook a variety of dishes using a range of cooking techniques and apparatus.
