Curriculum Intent

  • We believe Design Technology should foster enjoyment, satisfaction, and purpose in designing and making things and enable children to question ideas and talk about how things work using subject specific vocabulary. 

As designers our children will:

  • Develop the creative, technical, and practical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently and to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world
  • Develop a thorough knowledge of which tools, equipment, and materials to use to make their products
  • Select appropriate tools and techniques when making a product
  • Develop a growing body of knowledge, understanding and skills to design, make prototypes and products for a wide range of users
  • Follow safe procedures and manage risks well
  • Use time efficiently and work constructively and productively with others
  • Carry out thorough research, show initiative and ask questions to develop detailed knowledge of users’ needs
  • critique, evaluate and test their ideas and products and the work of others
  • Develop creative, technical, and imaginative thinking to become creative problem solvers with a willingness to take creative risks to produce innovative ideas
  • Build a knowledge of up-to-date technological innovations in materials, products, and systems
  • Understand and apply the principles of nutrition and learn how to cook
