Design and Technology
All pupils have the opportunity to experience being designers and innovators.
They will develop their understanding of products; their functions and design aspects that make them fit for purpose. This will provide the background stimulus and inspiration for children to think creatively, with innovation at the core of their decision-making. We want D&T to have a holistic approach, in order for children to understand that the subject is closely intertwined with other subjects across the curriculum. Our children will investigate existing products, apply the knowledge and skills whilst ensuring a clear audience and purpose.
'I enjoyed making an earthquake proof building because we learnt how to build a structure. We figured out how hard it is to build a sturdy building!' Year 4 designer.
'I really liked it when we were making catapults because I loved engineering the firing mechanism.' Year 4 problem solver.
