Here at The Divine Mercy Primary School we aim to inspire and challenge our children by equipping them with the knowledge, understanding and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design.
Lessons are designed to help children to progress and to encourage them to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design.
The National Curriculum for design and technology aims to ensure that all pupils: develop the creative, technical and practical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently and to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world. Children will build and apply a repertoire of knowledge, understanding and skills in order to design and make high-quality prototypes and products for a wide range of users. They will evaluate and test their ideas and products and the work of others. They will also learn how to apply the principles of nutrition and learn how to cook.
