Intent

Implementation

Each project is based around a design and technology subject focus of structures, mechanisms, cooking and nutrition or textiles. The design and technology curriculum’s electronic systems and IT monitoring and control elements are explicitly taught in our science projects to ensure the links between the subjects are highlighted. Where possible, meaningful links to other areas of the curriculum have been made. For example, the cooking and nutrition project Eat the Seasons is taught alongside the geography project Sow, Grow and Farm. All the projects follow a structure where children are introduced to key concepts and build up knowledge and skills over time, using a more comprehensive range of equipment and building, cutting, joining, finishing and cooking techniques as they progress through school. All projects contain focused, practical tasks in the Develop stage to help children gain the knowledge and skills needed to complete their Innovate tasks independently. Throughout Key Stages 1 and 2, children build up their knowledge and understanding of the iterative design process. They design, make, test and evaluate their products to match specific design criteria and ensure they fit their purpose. Throughout the projects, children are taught to work hygienically and safely.

Impact

In our Design and Technology lessons, you will see

  • Children who are being supported to develop their skills since returning to school in 2020
  • Teachers who are supported with the subject knowledge needed to plan well-sequenced lessons which help children progress with their design and technology work
  • Children who feel supported and able to improve their resilience and perseverance by continually evaluating and improving their work.
  • Quality work/evidence celebrated and presented in a variety of ways.
  • Children are confident and able to talk about design and technology and different structures, and the impact of design and technology on the world around them.
  • Children who are able to reflect upon and evaluate their own and others’ work
