Design & Technology


At Simonside Primary School, we encourage the children to be inventive and teach them the skills of how to plan and design their work, create a project and then evaluate it. This teaches them how to be creative and practical so it will give them confidence to perform everyday tasks. It also develops technical skills such as exploring how to make their creations stronger, stiffer and more stable.

At Simonside, we plan opportunities for the children to learn about nutrition and we provide them with opportunities to cook healthy snacks, drawing on our Healthy Schools Status.
