Design and Technology at Grove Road


‘Design and Technology is about making things that people want and work well. Creating things is hugely exciting: it is an inventive, fun activity.’

James Dyson


At Grove Road Primary School Design and Technology is about designing and making products for a specific need or purpose.


It involves children learning about the world we live in and developing a wide range of skills through designing and making. Design Technology encourages children to think creatively to solve problems, both as individuals and as members of a team. Children learn to reflect on and evaluate present and past Design and Technology, its uses and its effectiveness.


A wide range of skills and techniques are taught across the age ranges;
