Design and Technology aims to support children to take part in the development of tomorrow’s rapidly changing world. We aim to ensure children are supported with the changing world and hope to be able to prepare them for their futures on aspects of food, designing and the different technologies. We aim to provide opportunities to use the community as a resource for lessons. Parents and other visitors are welcomed into school to talk to children about aspects of this subject. Teachers will deliver high-quality D&T lessons we teach through a theme, allowing teachers to make links with other areas in the curriculum.
The national curriculum for art and design aims to ensure that all pupils:
- develop the creative, technical and practical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently and to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world.
- build and apply a repertoire of knowledge, understanding and skills in order 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.
