Design and Technology

“People who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.”

~Steve Jobs

Design and Technology Intent

Our Design and technology curriculum is intended to equip children with the creativity, imagination and skills required to thrive in our ever-changing technological world. We encourage children from all years to think beyond the classroom and solve real world problems whilst evaluating their achievements.  All pupils will have the experience of working with tools and technology to discover how and why the world’s greatest inventions exist and contribute to our everyday lives. Our curriculum strives to prepare our children for the constantly evolving world we live in so that they too can evolve with it. 

Design and Technology Implementation

Our Design and Technology curriculum is centred on the three main areas of product development,

  • Design
  • Make
  • Evaluate

Children will have the opportunity to research products and technologies that currently exist on the market, design their own to meet the needs of the consumer, construct/create/cook their product and evaluate its effectiveness for the brief.

Design and Technology is typically taught as one full day per term and incorporates all three areas mentioned above giving children the chance to see a project come together stage by stage.
