Over the course of Design Technology at Poppleton Road, children will learn a variety of skills which will help them in every day life. Every year group has a textiles unit at some point in the year which allows children to develop their various sewing techniques, meaning that they can improve as they progress through school.
Textiles also allows children to understand why certain materials are used. For example, are they durable? Is it waterproof? These kinds of questions make them realise why certain designs have been used, why they work so well, meaning that they can include them in their own product designs. This furthered knowledge will also improve their evaluating skills.
Other skills also include weaving, batik and many more!
