Design and Technology at Aston

At Aston on Trent Primary School, children’s creativity and imagination is captured through stimulating projects: cooking and nutrition, textile design, working mechanisms and construction techniques. Through exciting and inspiring lessons, children experience the stages involved in designing appealing, functional products. They relish the challenge of generating and communicating their own ideas in visual ways, using existing products and ideas as inspiration. Through using a variety of tools and techniques, pupils at Aston gain a vast knowledge of design and manufacturing, understanding the importance of evaluation in improving their products and designs.

The opportunity to attend extra-curricular clubs, such as Clay Club, and to participate in theme days linked to design and technology, adds to children’s overall experience of this exciting area of the curriculum. By the end of Year 6, children leaving Aston on Trent Primary School are confident, innovative, enterprising and resourceful young people, with the relevant skills to face an increasingly technological world.
