Design and Technology
The intention of our Design Technology curriculum is to encourage children to foster an interest in designing and making, whilst developing their curiosity about how different technologies operate within the wider world around them. This allows children to utilise their own creativity and imagination to design, make and evaluate real-life products, that have been carefully selected to make cross-curricular links throughout our Curriculum and support retrieval. Our bespoke Curriculum design ensures that children take part in focused purposeful tasks in which they progressively develop practical skills and technical knowledge, spanning across the four disciplines of food, textiles, structures and mechanisms throughout each year group. Each of the units follow a clear design process adhering to a strict design brief; through discussion and research, designing and making, evaluating and modifying their work, children record their achievements in individual pupil workbooks.
