Design & Technology

Design and Technology is taught throughout Chesham Preparatory school from Nursery to Year 8. From Year 5 up to Year 8 the pupils have the opportunity to work in the in the specialist technology room and they learn to use hand and power tools to shape, join and combine a variety of materials in a safe environment.

D & T Department

In the D&T department we seek to put the pupil in charge of their own Design and Make projects, encouraging them to value their ideas and choices. They will also work in groups where ideas are put forward and adapted whilst at the same time they learn to operate as part of a team to produce an end product.

The Design Process

The Design process is broken down into small manageable stages and each element becomes a focal point for the projects, design briefs and focused practical tasks. There are close subject links with Science and Maths where pupils can cement academic ideas in practical tasks. Many other cross curricular links develop naturally with subjects such as Music, Geography and History as the project themes change and new problems require a practical solution.

Food Technology

The Food Technology component is very popular with the pupils and they learn simple skills from cooking staple foods, rice, potatoes, pasta etc…. to preparing three course meals.
