DT Curriculum 2014

 

Design and technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. Using creativity and imagination, pupils design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. They acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. Pupils learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens. Through the evaluation of past and present design and technology, they develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world. High-quality design and technology education makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation.

 

Aims

The national curriculum for design and technology aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • develop the creative, technical and practical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently and to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world
  • build and apply a repertoire of knowledge, understanding and skills in order to design and make high-quality prototypes and products for a wide range of users
  • critique, evaluate and test their ideas and products and the work of others
  • understand and apply the principles of nutrition and learn how to cook.

Design and Technology at St Thomas of Canterbury

 

Here at St Thomas of Canterbury Primary we seek to promote understanding of the design and technology process and its value in our rapidly changing world. We inspire children to think creatively to solve real life problems. We encourage children to reflect on and evaluate present and past technology, its uses and its impact, so that all children may become informed consumers and potential innovators. We enable children to develop ideas and make products which combine practical skills with an understanding of aesthetic, social and environmental issues. We provide opportunities for children expand their knowledge and skills within the subject whilst also drawing upon key skills from across the curriculum, in particular Numeracy, science, ICT and Art.

 

The aims of Design and Technology at St Thomas of Canterbury:

 

  • To develop imaginative thinking in children and to enable them to talk about what they like and dislike when designing and making;
  • To enable children to talk about how things work, and to draw and model their ideas;
  • To encourage children to select appropriate tools and techniques for making a product, whilst following safe procedures;
  • To develop an understanding of technological processes, products, their manufacture and their contribution to our society;
  • To foster enjoyment, satisfaction and purpose in designing and making.
