Design and Technology




Design and Technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. DT encourages children to learn to think and intervene creatively to solve problems both as individuals and as members of a team.  The children are also given opportunities to reflect upon and evaluate past and present design technology, its uses and its effectiveness and are encouraged to become innovators and risk-takers. What we want children to know is clearly mapped out in our curriculum grids, we believe it is important to give our children lots of well-connected skills and knowledge as it’s the connection between facts that gives understanding and leads to the development of crucial skills such as problem solving and critical thinking. Intelligent repetition of skills is built in to our curriculum as we recognise that children need to be able to retrieve core skills quickly if they are to use it efficiently.
