Design Technology

Technology plays an ever increasing role in our lives and children are no strangers to it's advances. In this area children can use digital cameras, iPads and laptops to create images and designs.

Children can use the laptops to locate images for instance of the local architecture of the city, prior to designing and constructing structures with a large selection of wooden blocks, or explore form and property through colour mixing on the light table.

Fantastic resources are provided which give children the opportunity to bring their designs to life and explore the boundaries of gravity.

The physical environment enables children to explore different heights. It stimulates more opportunity for choice and adds a new dimension to their role play.
