Design & Technology

Design and Technology at Bishopthorpe Infant School


Design and Technology is a “hands on” subject in which pupils have the experience of evaluating, designing and making products of a high standard.  Design and Technology encourages children to examine their environment, question the world and to think about how and why things work the way they do.


Through Design and Technology, children will become more focused on what makes a successful product and more imaginative in how a product could be made or improved.

Christmas Enterprise Week 


During Enterprise Week, each class designed and made their products before selling them at the Enterprise Fair. Thank you to everyone who spent so generously helping us to raise over £400! The children have already had lots of ideas about what they would like to spend their profits on. 

Cookery Club


Each term Mrs Cropper and Mrs Yorke offer a Year 2 cookery club. This is a fantastic opportunity to learn new skills and build confidence in the kitchen! If you would like your child to take part, keep a look out for the letter which will be sent home a few weeks before the club is due to start.
