West Twyford Primary School Achieving Together

Design and Technology

Design and Technology


At West Twyford, we follow the National Curriculum for Design and Technology.


The aims of Design and Technology in our school are:

  • To develop imaginative thinking in children and to enable them to talk about what they like and dislike when designing and making;
  • To enable children to talk about how things work, and to draw and model their ideas;
  • To encourage children to select appropriate tools and techniques for making a product, whilst following safe procedures;
  • To foster enjoyment, satisfaction and purpose in designing and making;
  • To use ICT software to assist our designing and learning.


Below are just some of the learning experiences West Twyford has to offer students at the different year levels.
