Design Technology

Inspiring Great Designers 

At Great Orton, it is our vision that through Design and Technology, children are encouraged to design, make and evaluate creative, purposeful products through selecting appropriate materials and developing technical expertise to solve real, relevant problems. They will reflect on past and present design ideas and evaluate the effectiveness of these products in order to successfully design a product, which will cater for the needs and values of the end-user. Children at Great Orton will acquire a broad range of subject knowledge in a way which focuses upon skill progression, and follows a sequence to build on prior learning.
