Design Technology

Design and Technology

At Leigh on Mendip, Design and Technology is taught as a discrete subject with links made to other subjects where appropriate. In Design and Technology we learn about food technology - including preparing and cooking recipes from fresh ingredients. We design, build and test out models and evaluate their purpose and functionality. We use a variety of tools, techniques and materials. 

We use Kapow Primary to deliver our DT curriculum. This ensures that knowledge skills are progressively built upon as children move through the school. 

DT includes exploring

  • Cooking and nutrition

  • Mechanical systems

  • Textiles

  • Electrical systems

  • Structures

  • Digital world
