At Kennington CE Academy design and technology is an inspiring and practical subject. The purpose of DT education is to give pupils knowledge and skills that can be used in real life situations. Children are encouraged to work independently or as part of a team to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts and fit for a purpose. Where possible we try and link the children’s DT lessons to topic work and it also allows them to draw on areas of math, science, art and computing. Design and technology helps all children to become discerning and informed consumers and potential innovators.
Each year group chose a child to be a DT lead, they are the DT Directors. The children can support others with their DT in the year group and help develop DT across the school. Each child was given a plain lanyard and id badge wallet. They have used their creativity and design ideas to add to them and design their own unique DT Director labels.
