The Southwater Junior Academy


Design Technology

Our curriculum subject areas of the website are currently being revised and updated. However, please see below for a flavour of what we do.
At Southwater Junior Academy we base our DT learning around developing children's skills and ability to evaluate ideas.  Our aim is for children to develop skills in cooking, building structures, textiles and mechanisms. Each year the children are given opportunities to develop and refine their design skills and critically evaluate their own work.  Children gain practical experience of designing, creating, adjusting and evaluating in their lessons.  They are also given opportunities to use their computing skills to design products.
