What are the aims of teaching Design and Technology?
The National Curriculum for design and technology (DT) aims to ensure that all pupils:
Design and Technology at Bramley St Peter’s
At Bramley St Peter’s Primary School, we aim to provide all children with a broad and balanced curriculum which prepares them for life beyond primary education. In DT, we do this through topic-based projects encouraging children to use their creativity and imagination, to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts.
The Design and Technology curriculum combines skills, knowledge and concepts to enable children to tackle real problems which are built on every year. It can improve analysis, problem solving, practical capability and evaluation skills.
We aim to, wherever possible, link work to other subjects such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art.
The children are encouraged to become innovators and risk-takers by building on their skills through taught sequences.
A high-quality design and technology education makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the whole world.
