King Edward Primary School and Nursery Excitement + Determination = Success


Y1 have had a busy day being designers and making Great Fire of London moving pictures.

At King Edward Primary School, we teach Design and Technology by meeting the requirements of the National Curriculum. Quality first Design and Technology education involves two important elements – learning about the designed and made world and how things work, and learning to design and make functional products for particular purposes and users. We deliver a high-quality education which provides opportunities for our pupils to develop their capability, combining their designing and making skills with the knowledge and understanding needed to create quality products.  At King Edward Primary School, we develop our pupils’ skills and knowledge in design, structures, mechanisms, electrical control and food technology. These skills also help consolidate learning within the wider curriculum. Furthermore, we hope to enable our pupils to become the technologists of the future by instilling a strong sense of environmental impact and sustainability throughout their projects.


We will do this by:

  • Investigating and evaluating existing products
  • Developing particular aspects of knowledge and skills by completing focused tasks
  • Designing and making ‘something’ for ‘somebody’ for ‘some purpose’.
