In the first half of the Spring term, children develop their design and technology skills and understanding by developing a product linked to the theme of sustainability. Children explore and analyse existing designs, develop their own ideas, conduct focused practical tasks to develop their making skills, and then bring all of their learning to design and make a purposeful product. Across their time at primary, children learn a range of skills linked to cutting and joining, as well as ambitious skills such as Batik.

Year 2: T-shirts
