D&T Curriculum Overview

We teach Design and Technology in a way that inspires creativity and imagination. Pupils design and make products that solve real and relevant problems, considering the product, purpose and user. Our children have the opportunity to evaluate past and present design and technology, understanding the impact on daily life. When designing, they communicate their ideas through diagrams, mock-ups and prototypes. They learn technical knowledge relating to structures, mechanisms, textiles and food technology. They develop skills when using various tools including scissors, saws and drills, considering accuracy and safety. There are opportunities to evaluate and test their ideas and products, ensuing that it meets the initial design brief.
