KS2 Design & Technology

KS2 Design and Technology lesson planning, projects and ideas.

We've created these complete Key Stage 2 DT schemes of work with busy teachers in mind! That's why they include detailed lesson planning for a range of fun projects – each with slides and a choice of differentiated learning activities. With the detailed slideshow presentations and printable resources to support them, children will develop their designing and making skills, learn about using a range of tools and materials to make purposeful products, and get to grips with designing and cooking nutritious meals, too.

Our Reviews

“I just wanted to say a big thank you! Your lovely resources make my life as a teacher that little bit more bearable. I spend most of my evenings and weekends planning and resourcing lessons, but since discovering the magic of PlanBee I have been able to 'claim back' some of this time. My class of 30 hard-to-please children certainly enjoyed learning about the Greeks last term - all thanks to you! ”
