Design and Technology
DT lessons throughout the age range at Dragon Pre-Prep focus on the skills of designing and making. Designing skills are developed through communicating ideas, generating and developing ideas, drawing plans, investigating and evaluating. Making skills are developed through planning, using a variety of tools, measuring and marking out, cutting and shaping, joining and combining. Children develop these skills through focused practical tasks.
Design and Technology is also used to broaden other curriculum areas. It draws on the children's knowledge from other subjects and enhances their work, therefore making the projects cross curricular.
