Design and Technology

‘High-quality design and technology education makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation.’ (The National Curriculum)

At Manor Park Primary Academy, every child engages in quality Design and Technology (D&T) education from their entry into Nursery until the end of KS2 in Year 6.  We work closely with the Cornerstones curriculum which details engaging and relevant D&T activities which support the children within their topics and ensures that the standards for D&T are high and are achieved through engaging and well-supported lessons. 

In the Early Years, D&T is incorporated consistently into daily routines and is used to enhance continuous provision in addition to being taught as a stand-alone subject.  

As well as engaging in activities linked with Cornerstone's Learning Projects, pupils may also participate in the following D&T opportunities:

  • D&T workshops run by outside organisations where linked to children’s learning

  • KS2 Sewing club 

  • KS2 Cooking club
