I have the great pleasure of leading Design and Technology. It is a subject I am very passionate about.
In the last few years there has been great emphasis placed on children thinking technically, designing and evaluating as well as constructing purposefully. As a result, we have begun a drive to enhance our children's love of building.
DT within the school inspires a love of possibilities; the children are given many opportunities to 'think outside the box.' They are encouraged to research, test and adjust as they create.
We have developed a Progression of skills for 4 strands DT:
(Details of these strands can be found in the Handout document linked below)
Below there is also a copy of the Powerpoint presentation from a Staff Training Meeting (Spring 2015) and a Progression of skills document which runs alongside our 4 strand model mentioned above.
Any questions related to DT please feel free to pop in.
