Design and technology education at Pollington-Balne CE Primary school develops pupils imagination and creativity through practically learning skills and technical knowledge to design, make and then evaluate products. Cross-curricular learning greatly supports design and technology due to the practical skills of drawing and labelling plans, accurately measuring materials to use, communicating ideas as the product develops in addition to working collaboratively during projects. Considering if current designs are fit for purpose encourages pupils to consider how improvements could be included as projects progress.
