The Design & Technology curriculum provides children with an interesting and fun way to develop their skills in designing and making. Each year group undertakes at least 3 DT projects each year, which build on prior learning, developing existing skills and introducing new ones. During each project children will engage in activities that enable them to:
· Investigate, dissemble & evaluate products
· Undertake focused practical tasks (to practice skills)
· Design & make products for a purpose
· Evaluate their own and others’ work
During the primary curriculum the projects undertaken will cover varied themes as structures, textiles, mechanisms, electrical control & food technology.
All children will use a wide range of tools appropriate to the unit of work and under careful health and safety guidance, whilst learning how to recognise hazards and take appropriate action.
