Our children like to design and make different things, whether that is a planned part of the currirulum or as part of our weekly whole school plan- do - review sessions. We encourage them to be purposeful in their designs and support them to improve their skills in using different materials and tools. We want our children to know about good design, to understand the design process and also to have knowledge of artists and designers.

We want our children to understand that design is a creative problem solving process and that design can be used to help us in every day life. It is through good responsible design that society is finding solutions to many of the world's problems; we want our children to be the designers of the future.
