The design and technology curriculum offers cooking, designing and constructing learning opportunities by linking to topics in subject areas. Children’s learning opportunities will be showcased in their journals.

The D&T curriculum will allow children to develop their resilience and curiosity by designing and creating products using specific skills.  It will allow children to become creative problem solvers as individuals and as a team. In addition to this, the curriculum offers children creative and practical opportunities to perform everyday tasks confidently in order to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world and develop transferable skills required for jobs of the future.

The D&T curriculum will allow children to develop their prior skills and knowledge and learn new skills to create new products. The progression over the year groups will allow children to expand and experiment with their own creative ideas.

Design and Technology is taught through the Sticky Curriculum by teachers. Big Questions have been planned to include either Art or DT with some incorporating a mixture. Design and Technology is broken down into cooking, textiles, construction and mechanics and electronics. All year groups will take part in cooking, other areas have been planned into different year groups to allow knowledge and skills to be developed deeper. The teaching of cooking and nutrition supports the school in working as a Bronze Food for Life School aiming to achieve Silver.
