EYFS Our Design Technology Curriculum
During the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), children will be given the opportunity to explore colour, texture, shape and form in two and three dimensions. The children will have access to a wide range of constructions, collage, painting and drawing activities, using appropriate tools and art materials.
The Early Years outcomes for Design Technology are taken from the following areas of learning:
Understanding the World

During the Early Years Foudation Stage children will learn to:
handle equipment and tools effectively, including pencils for writing.
safely use and explore a variety of materials, tools and techniques, experimenting with colour, design, texture, form and function.
