Our Design and Technology curriculum is creative, purposeful and progressive. We aim to deepen children’s knowledge, understanding and skills that are linked with both the National Curriculum and relevant to our children’s lives. We encourage children to become creative problem-solvers, both as individuals and as part of a team and aim to inspire the designers of the future!
Our children experience food technology in every year group as we acknowledge this as a life skill that our children will need in adulthood. The children learn about the nutrition and a healthy balanced lifestyle.
Our Design and Technology curriculum is taught using inspiring sequences of learning. Our curriculum encourages the children to design purposeful, functional and appealing products based on design criteria. We also explicitly teach the importance of safety throughout school. All concepts are revisited using a sequence of learning that is progressive and builds upon prior learning enabling children build on existing knowledge alongside introducing new skills and challenge. Through these lessons, the children will develop a love of Design and Technology and see how it has helped shaped the ever-evolving technological world they live in.
Examples of children’s work demonstrate our intent and implementation for all pupils.
