Design and Technology

“Good buildings come from good people, and all problems are solved by good design.” - Stephen Gardiner

 

Purpose of study 

A high-quality design and technology education will enable pupils to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems, taking into account their own and other’s needs, wants and values. Design and technology will teach children the skills needed to take risks, whilst being resourceful, innovative and enterprising citizens. Teaching will equip pupils to develop a critical understanding, encouraging thoughts about the impact of design and technology on their daily life and the wider world. Design and technology allows children to make an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the population.

 

Aims

The school design and technology curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils: 

  • Develop the creative, technical and practical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks and to participate in an increasingly technological world. 
  • Build on their knowledge to design and make high-quality prototypes and products for a wide range of users. 
  • Critique, evaluate and test their ideas and products and the work of others. 
  • Understand and apply the principles of nutrition and learn how to cook.

Organisation

  • Design and technology will be taught on alternate half terms. 
  • Within each Key Stage children should have the opportunity to explore food, mechanics, construction, textiles, electricals and materials. 
  • Each unit needs to follow the design, make and evaluate structure. 
  • Units of work should aim to have a cross-curricular link.
