DESIGN AND TECHNOLOGY @ BISHOP
Design and Technology at Bishopsteignton encourages children to learn to think creatively in order to solve problems both as individuals and as members of a team. We encourage our children to use their creativity and imagination, to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others criteria. Our children are also given opportunities to reflect upon and evaluate their own and others designs and are encouraged to become innovators and risk-takers. At Bishopsteignton, we aim to allow all our learners to explore and develop a wide range of skills that can be transferred to their later life.
