This afternoon in Fabulous Fox class we talked about feelings, our feeling today was ‘worry’… The children had the choice to create a poem or a poster to help others if they feel worried. They wanted to share them with you 😀 . pic.twitter.com/CsxSLNjdGe

Design technology

Why is the teaching of design technology important for Roydon's pupils?

Design technology is important because it nurtures essential skills like problem-solving, creativity, and critical thinking. It encourages pupils to explore, design and create, fostering a hands-on approach to learning. Additionally, it promotes collaboration, communication, and adaptability - skills vital for success in a rapidly evolving world. Integrating design technology at the primary levels lays a foundation for future STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) engagement and helps pupils develop a holistic understanding of the world around them.
