Design & Technology
Design & Technology tasks at Riverside Academy are part of our integrated curriculum, to ensure that they are meaningful to the children and also to allow them to link their learning in Design & Technology to other areas of the curriculum. After being given a design brief, children are able to explore the task, perhaps by testing existing products or by doing some additional research. The next stage of the design process allows the children to generate and refine ideas by trying out different techniques and evaluating their own and others work. They are then able to produce a finished product and evaluate this against the original design brief.
