Year 4 Design & Technology

Year 4 Design & Technology lesson planning and schemes of work.

To help teachers build their Y4 children's knowledge, skills and understanding about DT, every scheme of work you'll find here includes detailed planning, slideshow presentations and (where appropriate) worksheets, challenge cards, instructions or evaluation resources. These practical projects and cooking and nutrition lessons are highly differentiated, too – meaning they're ideal for teaching in Year 3 or mixed-age classes as well.
