Design and Technology 

Intent

The Design and Technology curriculum is designed to inspire children to think innovatively and inquisitively whilst following the aims and objectives of the National Curriculum.

Our intent is to encourage children to become independent, creative problem solvers and thinkers as individuals and as part of a team. Children are given opportunities to design and make products within a variety of contexts, considering their own needs, wants and values.

Implementation

DT is delivered through a well-planned and well-resourced rolling programme curriculum. Through a variety of creative and practical activities, we teach the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to engage in the process of being a designer and maker. Children are taught to show a clear process which includes challenging pupils at all levels. Children are supported to explore a range of existing products and formulate opinions on these, in order to make design decisions for their own product. New vocabulary is taught progressively across the year groups and is displayed in classrooms. Food Technology is implemented across the school with children developing an understanding of where food comes from, the importance of a varied and healthy diet and how to prepare this. DT is assessed at the beginning and end of a unit.

Impact

Our children learn to take risks, be reflective, innovative, enterprising and resilient. Products become more complex throughout the key stages and products produced demonstrate age appropriate skills. Children leave us being able to talk about the process of designing, making and evaluating.
