Design and Technology

In our school the teaching of design technology demands that pupils are curious and brave in order to achieve success. Pupils are encouraged to become independent, creative problem-solvers and thinkers, as individuals and as part of a team. Our curriculum is planned so that pupils follow a process where evaluation and communication are key. Design technology projects allow pupils to apply skills from across the curriculum: mathematics, science, computing and art – to design, make and evaluate products that solve real and relevant problems.
Design and Technology gives pupils the skills that enable them to think creatively and imaginatively to design, make and evaluate products within a variety of contexts. Through evaluation of past and present design and technology, pupils develop their critical thinking – critiquing and evaluating ideas and products. Food technology is implemented across the curriculum with children developing an understanding of where food comes from, the importance of a varied and healthy diet and how to prepare this.
Our Design Technology curriculum has considered that pupils should carry out practical activities (to design, make and evaluate) linked to their topic focus.
