Design and Technology


It is our intent that our Design and Technology curriculum cultivates technical and   practical expertise.  In order to develop design and technology knowledge and skills children will learn how to evaluate, test and adapt ideas and designs. Opportunities to develop these skills will be provided by designing and make products that solve real relevant problems within a variety of contexts. The purpose of which is to allow our children to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world.

We use formative assessment to measure the impact of our Design and Technology curriculum, which is recorded and monitored on a tracking system. Evidence of learning and experiences can be found in books and through conversations with our children. The Design and Technology lead monitors the teaching and evidence of the subject through book and planning scrutinies, alongside observations of lessons and conversations with the staff team. Our Knowledge Organisers, ongoing retrieval powerpoints (see Year Group page) and many other activities and strategies are used to revisit and recap prior learning, and to assess retained facts.
