Welcome to the Design and Technology page.  Below, you will find links to all the information on Design and Technology you need to see what our children are learning at school. You might find the Design and Technology Curriculum Coverage and Progression and Skills document particularly useful for supporting your child's learning at home.

 

At Rosehill Infant School, we believe that our Design and Technology curriculum will give our children a strong foundation of key skills and knowledge in DT. This will enable them to develop the confidence and creativity to become the designers of products in our technological world. Through our broad and balanced curriculum, our children are given the opportunities to explore, discover and develop their skills through practical, hands-on experience, where they evaluate and improve models, products and designs.

Our children are the future and we believe that our carefully planned curriculum will help to inspire the future designers and innovators.
