What are the aims of teaching DT?

The National Curriculum for design and technology (DT) 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.

 

Teaching Design and Technology at Bramley St Peter’s Primary

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.

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, concepts and values 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.

 High-quality design and technology education makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the whole world.
