Design and Technology

Meet Diana: Our Longmoor Curriculum Design Character



Diana Design loves nothing more than to draw and design something new. She loves to work with lots of different materials to create a master piece which she then likes to appraise and evaluate to see if she could improve it.


Diana wants to see you learn how to prepare food, use fabric, wood and cardboard, use frames, levers, pulleys, switches and circuits. She wants you to draw clear designs, use labels, adapt and then evaluate the finished product you have made carefully and accurately.

Design Technology at Longmoor



At Longmoor Primary School, we believe that design and technology helps to prepare children for the developing world and encourages them to become curious and creative problem-solvers, both as individuals and as part of a team.


Through the study of design and technology, they combine practical skills with an understanding of aesthetic, social and environmental issues. Design and technology helps all children to become discerning and informed consumers and potential innovators. It provides children with a greater awareness and understanding of how everyday products are designed and made.


Our aims are:

  • to develop imaginative thinking in children and to enable them to talk about what they like and dislike when designing and making;
  • to enable children to talk about how things work, and to draw and model their ideas;
  • to encourage children to select appropriate tools and techniques for making a product, whilst following safe procedures;
  • to foster enjoyment, satisfaction and purpose in designing and making.
