Design and Technology
The children at Wells love Design and Technology projects. The DT curriculum at Wells enables the children to gain knowledge and understanding of materials, structures, controls and mechanisms. It also provides them with opportunities to develop their designing, enquiry, scientific and mathematical skills.
The DT curriculum is stimulating, inspiring and challenging. Every phase group has the opportunity to complete clay, textile, electrical and model projects.
Many of the DT projects at Wells are linked with other subjects, for example the children will make bridges to complement their topic on Rivers in Years 5 and 6.
The children often use art and ICT to support their design and technology work.
