At Sinai, our Design and Technology (DT) curriculum empowers children to unleash their creativity through a systematic process of planning and crafting a final product Central to this process is the invaluable practice of evaluation which children use to adapt and enhance their creations - a skill they will carry with them throughout their lives.
DT serves as a bridge between various subjects, enabling our students to apply the knowledge and skills they've acquired in areas such as maths, science and art. It ensures that learning is interconnected and meaningful, fostering motivation and providing purpose for their education.
One of the key strengths of DT lies in its capacity to bring academic knowledge to life through practical experiences. In any given term, our children can seamlessly merge their understanding of measurement from maths, the states of matter from science, and the nuances of international cuisines from geography, culminating in a delightful culinary creation of their own. This approach is especially beneficial for those students who thrive on 'doing' rather than simply 'seeing.'
In essence, DT at Sinai is not just about creating tangible items; it's about cultivating a culture of innovation, problem-solving and hands-on learning. It equips our students with the skills they need to navigate an ever-changing world and make a meaningful impact.
