Technology describes a way of working in which pupils investigate a need or respond to an opportunity to make or modify something. They use their knowledge and understanding to devise a method or solution, realise it practically and evaluate the end product and decisions taken during the process. It draws on knowledge and skills from many other subjects; in particular it is closely associated with science, to which it also contributes.
Throughout EYFS and KS1, children are given opportunities to use construction apparatus, which will become more addvanced throughout the year groups e.g. Lego or Reoclick, recyclable materials or purchased construction materials e.g. fabric or wood.
