Design and Technology
Design and Technology at Tylers Green Middle School comprises of three units per academic year with a focus on Food Technology, Structures and Product Design. We are very fortunate to have our fantastic Block area specifically for supporting our children in Art, Design and Technology and Science which contains a large kitchen space allowing for 16 pupils at once to cook simultaneously to aid Food Technology lessons and learning.
Our D&T Curriculum is broken down into creative, technical, practical and cooking skills that are developed and built upon during the pupil's time at the school. Pupils in our school have a wide variety of opportunities and experiences in their Design and Technology lessons that support their problem solving skills and help them develop their understanding of subject matter from across the curriculum. There is strong links with our Computing curriculum, in particular developing designs and prototypes using computer aided design software.
