Design and Technology is about providing opportunities for children to use creativity and imagination to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems, considering their own and others' needs.
Making mistakes is a huge part of Design and Technology and integral to learning.
Children should also develop skills alongside the design process related to food technology, woodwork, sewing, moving mechanisms and more.
Each year group takes part in one Design and Technology topic per term and one of these topics is food related. Food technology and cooking skills are also taught through cross curricular links. Cooking is enhanced further through other special days and weeks i.e. Health Week, celebrations etc.
