Design & Technology


 At ARPA, we want children to be inspired by engineers, designers, chefs, scientists and architects to enable them to create a range of structures, mechanisms, textiles, electrical systems and food products with a real-life purpose. 

Design and Technology is about providing opportunities for children to use creativity and imagination to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems, considering their own and others’ needs. They are encouraged to be innovative whilst thinking about sustainability and enterprise. 

We make very deliberate links with other subjects so the children can apply their mathematical and scientific knowledge in this area. Heritage is also very important to us so we have aligned our design and technology learning with our History curriculum.
