Our approach to Design and Technology continues in the style of our creative curriculum. We want children to respond creatively to real life issues and problems in order to find solutions using their imagination and expanding knowledge as they move through our school.
Design and technology draws on children’s knowledge from all areas of the curriculum and allows them the opportunity to design, make and evaluate how effective their decisions have been in response to a problem or challenge. In this way, children become resourceful and innovative in their thinking; evolving and changing their responses throughout the design process.
We want the children of our school to:
Dare to engage in creative thinking to solve a problem.
Discover the skills they have from all aspects of their learning can be applied to a task as they respond to it.
Do their best to design, make and evaluate a response to a real or relevant problem.
