Henley Green’s our place to shine!



Welcome to Design Technology at Henley Green


At Henley Green, we want to ensure that our children are prepared for the ever changing world of technology. This learning will start within the EYFS and will continue through to year 6. 

We will provide cross-curricular opportunities throughout EYFS, KS1 and KS2 in order for the children to develop their skills as design technologists. 


Our Design and Technology lessons encourage children to design and make their own products. We explore the whole design process by exploring and evaluating a diverse range of designers and products that already exist. We will design, make and evaluate our own work. We link our design products with our Topics where appropriate and ensure we meet the expectations in the Design and Technology programme of Study.



Children leave Henley Green with an enhanced and deepened knowledge and understanding of Design Technology. They will develop the creative, technical and practical expertise needed to perform every day tasks confidently.  The children will be able to critique, evaluate and test their own ideas as well as the work of others. 


Cooking and Nutrition

Across the school at Henley Green, we are passionate about healthy eating and healthy lifestyles. This is a large part of the Design Technology Curriculum. We have a purpose built kitchen where children can learn how to boil, bake, cook, grill and fry!




Design Technology in the classroom. 

Year 2 evaluated existing habitats, then designed, made and evaluated their own!

Henley Green Garden

If you look in our garden, you might see some veggies growing (especially in the summer months). We often have beans and potatoes (and weeds!).


Ideas to do in your garden or down at the park.

Using our design and construction skills, KS1 children made moving toys and fire engines. KS2 successfully made festival decorations (using construction skills) and pyramids that lit up (using maths, construction and electric skills). It was great fun and the children’s end products were fabulous.

Things to do at home:

Cooking for your family. Lemon Drizzle cake

Textiles: investigate weaving. You will need cardboard, scissors, glue and leaves or flowers from the garden.

What a beautiful finished product!
