Design and Technology
Our design and technology curriculum inspires children to design and make products that address real problems in a range of contexts. Children will create and communicate the purpose of the products they design and create so that they become resourceful and enterprising who understand the impact of design and technology on their own lives and the lives of others.
The choices we have made within our design and technology curriculum will enable children to draw upon their knowledge from a range of subjects – science, maths, history, computing and art – whilst still ensuring that the teaching and learning of the DT curriculum is authentic and not compromised. Children develop basic skills in designing and making. Alongside this, children learn important skills of critiquing, both of their own work and that of others, and responding to constructive criticism for ways to enhance their work. Our curriculum will expose children to a wide range of artist, designers and works of art from around the world and throughout time.
We follow the National Curriculum and use the planning units from data.org to support teaching and learning. We have sequenced the subject content meticulously to best suit the needs of our children and to compliment effective learning strategies. Alongside this, we have developed a progression of skills to support teaching and learning.
