Design and technology gives children the opportunity to develop a broad range of skills and knowledge to make purposeful and relevant products. At Mere Green, we feel it is essential that children explore and harness the innovation needed to create functional products that solve real problems within a variety of contexts. Through exploring past and present design and the made world in which we live, they develop a critical understanding of how and why products are created and the impact of them on daily life. They better understand how high-quality design and technology can make an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of our nation.
Children at Mere Green acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. They learn how to solve problems, apply a logical and creative approach to their designing and making, to take risks where necessary and evaluate and reflect critically about their own and other’s products.
