At Oakfield we believe that our Design and Technology curriculum learning should be practical. Our children will have opportunities to draw upon other areas of the curriculum, such as links to History, Science, Mathematics and English. The topics will link to daily life and the wider world. Using creativity and imagination, our children incorporate the skills of cutting, sawing, sewing and food preparation. Pupils are also expected to problem solve and evaluate their own pieces of work in order to make improvements and develop their skill of resourcefulness and adaptability that will support and benefit them throughout their schooling and in to the working world. Design and Technology promotes both independent and team work, which is something we actively encourage. These are also skills that will benefit throughout their schooling years and into the wider (ever developing) world.
