Creative practical and imaginative skills are developed through a variety of media and a balanced programme of activities. Art activities may be linked to themes or topics, which will be explored using the children’s own ideas and through the work of other artists and designers.
Children are taught to handle a range of tools and equipment. They will be given opportunities to acquire skills in order to design, and to implement their designs. Where possible D.T. activities are integrated with other curriculum areas and give children “real” purposes for making.
