There are many opportunities for children to gain cultural capital in Design Technology at Etwall Primary School, for example, children take part in various art projects such as Year 1 and 2 are constructing toys with moving parts, designed with a particular demographic in mind.  Design has also been linked to recent projects such as designing and building a Roman house as part of the Year 3 and 4 Roman Experience. Year 5 and 6 will use software skills they have learnt to edit photographs and design web sites.
The impact of our curriculum can partly be seen in the wonderful photos of our work below.
