Therfield First School

“Bringing Learning to Life”

Rooks Nest Class (KS2)

Design and Technology in Key Stage 2

In Rooks Nest, we undertake two detailed design and technology units/projects each year.  During 2021-22, we planned, designed and made:

  • a battery powered light (Linked to our 'Robots' topic)
  • a kite (Lined to our 'Need for Speed' topic)

Design and technology topics are linked to the main class topic and are taught through practical lessons where children build upon existing skills whilst learning new technical knowledge.  Units of work are well-structured and move through the process of designing, making and evaluating.
