Design and Technology

Miss Sophie Barnes

Year 1 Class Teacher and DT Lead


At Chacewater School we aim to provide children with a DT education that is relevant to our rapidly changing world. We want to encourage our children to become problem-solvers who can work creatively on a shared project. 

We believe that high-quality DT lessons will inspire children to think independently, innovatively and develop creative, procedural and technical understanding. 

Our Design Technology curriculum provides children with opportunities to research, represent their ideas, explore and investigate, develop their ideas, make a product and evaluate their work. 

Children will be exposed to a wide range of media including textiles, food and structures; through this, children will develop their skills, vocabulary and resilience.
