How to support your child: 

  • Watch a cookery programmes with them on television to gain a greater insight into the different techniques used in cooking as well as different ingredients.
  • Go to the supermarket so that your child gains a better understanding about the origins, range and prices of different ingredients
  • Accompany your child to the V&A and Design Museum to get a better appreciation for modern products, fashion and the way in which textiles are used in our everyday lives.
  • Encourage your child to think of a range of solutions to design problems (not just one).
  • Encourage your child to draw at home so that they are able to improve their drawing skills and the way they are able to communicate their design ideas to others
